What are heartworms?

Heartworms are long, spaghetti-like worms that live in the major blood vessels of infected dogs. They can grow to be 10 inches in length and can lead to death in dogs if left untreated. Heartworms are spread when a mosquito that has bitten an infected dog goes on to bite a healthy dog.

Although heartworms are among the most deadly of parasites, other worms including roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms also pose a threat to your dog’s health. Infection from these worms can cause your dog to feel weak or have diarrhea. You may even notice these worms appearing in your dog’s feces.

Fortunately, it’s easy to prevent heartworm disease and control other worm infections with monthly medication. Below are some products that Virbac has developed to protect your dog from heartworms and to control other worms. If you have questions about any of these treatments, be sure to talk with your veterinarian. As with any treatment, always listen to your veterinarian’s instructions and read the product label.
