April is also National Heartworm Awareness Month. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States. It is caused by worms that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats and ferrets. Click here to learn more about heartworms and how they can affect your pets.
