Our pets are more than just animals; they are our children, our companions, and an integral part of our family. When they are ill or injured, we want the best care possible for them. We want to ensure they are in good hands, especially when it comes to surgeries.
Heartworm infection occurs when a parasitic worm attacks pets. It can cause severe illness. Mosquitoes transmit the blood-borne parasite. The larvae pass into the bloodstream, making their way to the heart. The infection can cause fatal heart and lung problems if not detected and treated. Arid climates are considered low-risk for heartworm infections, but they can still happen.
