Everything you need to know about the heartworm – The mosquito

You may have heard of heartworm disease or heartworm disease. It is a dangerous heart disease that, if not treated in time, can be fatal for dogs and cats. Therefore, although there is no need to panic, it is essential to know how to recognize the symptoms in time. Early detection could save your pet’s life! This disease is not spread directly, but requires a mosquito as an intermediary. The insect seeks the shortest and finest layers of hair to bite and lay its eggs. However, even if your furry has long hair, it could also become infected. Be very careful! Especially with the arrival of spring and mosquitoes.

Once the animal has been infected, the worms begin to lodge in the heart and nearby blood vessels. Also, it is rare for parasites to be found in other parts of the circulatory system. The female worm measures between 15 and 30 centimeters, while the male is usually half the size. By the time the furry has been diagnosed, it already has approximately 300 worms in its body.

Normally, symptoms are usually evident when the disease is very advanced, so you must act quickly. If your pet has a dry cough, weakness, nervousness, shortness of breath, bleeding or loss of resistance, do not hesitate and go to a veterinarian as soon as possible. It is probably just a scare and your furry is fine, but surely you will be much calmer after performing the relevant tests. Also, these symptoms are more noticeable after exercise, when the animal could become dizzy or even pass out.

To prevent your furry from getting infected, you can give him a preventive vaccine or use an internal or external antiparasitic regularly. Remember that the most important thing is their health, and that in some cases the death of the animal is inevitable. Therefore, we insist that visits to the vet should be made frequently.
