Pets and Heartworms Directory

Heartworms are dangerous parasites that can cause serious illness or even death in untreated cases. These worms can be prevented with medications that your pet should start as a puppy or kitten and continue throughout their whole life. Treatments are available if your dog gets heartworms, and therapies may help support cats.
