What is heartworm disease?

Heartworm disease is exactly what it sounds like: parasitic worms that live in the heart, lungs, and surrounding blood vessels. It’s a dangerous disease that leads to organ damage and failure and can result in death. Heartworm disease most commonly affects dogs, as their bodies provide more suitable living conditions for the worms than other animals.

The disease is transmitted by mosquitoes that carry immature worms. It takes just one bite for your pet to become infected. Heartworm disease isn’t contagious and cannot be spread via contact with infected dogs. However, when a mosquito bites a dog with the parasite, it is now infected with the tiny worm offspring that live in the dog’s bloodstream. This is the life cycle of heartworms.

Once inside the dog’s body, the worms mature, continue to reproduce, and cause a myriad of health problems. Symptoms may not be evident in early stages, but allowing heartworm disease to progress will cause damage to vital organs and, ultimately, death. Treatment is costly.


Prevention is key when it comes to heartworm disease. As the only once-yearly heartworm preventative medication, ProHeart®12 is a great option for dogs age one year and older. Plus, when you purchase a ProHeart®12 injection you earn $20 on your Zoetis Rewards account!

Don’t wait to protect your pup – schedule your injection appointment today! And don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about ProHeart®12!
