Dogs develop heartworms from a mosquito bite. You can protect them with a monthly preventative. Once a dog develops heartworms, they must go through a months-long treatment to eradicate the worms from their system. The treatment involves shoring up the body with antibiotics, then a powerful injection to kill the parasites, followed by low activity while the parasite releases from the organs and flushes from the dog's system. Failure to treat heartworm will ultimately result in strangled organs and death.

Give your dog(s) a monthly heartworm preventative! Especially if you live in a state where mosquitoes are prevalent!
