Pets and Heartworms Directory
Heartworms are dangerous parasites that can cause serious illness or even death in untreated cases.

Treatments are available if your dog gets heartworms, and therapies may help support cats. See your veterinarian for the best care for your pet, and learn more here about heartworms in dogs and cats.
