Heartworm disease is a debilitating disease following infection by the parasitic worm Dirofilaria immitis through mosquito bites.
and connecting blood vessels of their host where they make their home. They may live for up to eight years and grow up to 35 cm in length.
The adult heartworms trigger inflammation in the walls of the lung’s arteries, block blood vessels and restrict the blood supply to organs. This puts extra strain on the heart and can cause heart failure. Without treatment, the effects can be severe.
Adult females release their own larvae into the bloodstream. The cycle continues when a mosquito ingests these larvae when biting an infected dog and deposits them into the bloodstream of another animal.
