Heartworm disease is an invisible, silent killer — which makes protecting your pet a year-round necessity.

Pets contract heartworm disease when they are bitten by an infected mosquito. Heartworm is, unfortunately, a deadly disease, and in most cases, pets won’t show symptoms until it’s too late.

So, how can you protect your furry family member? Prevention is key, so use one of the several monthly or yearly preventatives available and get your pet tested for heartworm disease.
