heartworm diagram dogHeartworm disease is spread through infected mosquitos when they bite our furry friends. Mosquitos carry a parasitic worm called Dirofilaria immitis, which are transmitted to dogs and cats once that infected mosquito bites. The worms then mature into adults, mate, and then produce offspring while living inside. The worms then migrate to the heart, lungs, and blood vessels.
