In 2004, more than a quarter of a million pets were affected by a disease that is completely preventable. Heartworm disease, spread by mosquitoes, is often un-noticed by the pet owner because of the lack of apparent symptoms. Untreated, this parasite can cause exercise intolerance, coughing, damage to the main blood vessels of the heart, liver failure and even death. Pet owners can prevent this potentially fatal disease by the use of economical monthly medications. The continued high incidence of this problem has experts looking at many biological factors and even at the shift of our population to different areas of the country.
