Heartworm Life Cycle Heartworm disease is a potentially life threatening condition. Even though your pet may spend a majority of its time indoors, it only takes one mosquito bite to infect a host. It's important to test yearly because of the seriousness of heartworm infection. Sometimes you may miss a dose without realizing it, or the pet may vomit up the pill in the yard, and the veterinarian's job is to ensure your pet is healthy and tests negative for heartworm every year. By the time a pet shows symptoms of heartworm disease such as coughing and difficultly breathing, the cardiovascular system has already been damaged. Treatment is costly, sometimes unavailable, and also a health risk to the pet. Click here for frequently asked questions about heartworm disease.
