Save Your Pet's Life with Heartworm Prevention
True or False: "My dog is an inside dog. He/she doesn't need heartworm prevention."
Answer is: FALSE. Mosquitoes, like most other insects, can get indoors too. Heartworms are transmitted to dogs and cats by mosquitoes.
Many of the dogs that come into foster care are heartworm positive. This is a completely preventable disease. One of Pitt Friends' goals is to make the public aware about heartworms, heartworm disease and heartworm prevention.
There are often no signs or symptoms that the animal has been infected. Monthly prevention is the most effective tool in preventing this horrible disease. The treatment for a dog with heartworms is painful, and if not monitored properly, deadly.
Speak with your vet about which form of prevention will be best for your pet.
