April is National Heartworm Awareness Month

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) 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, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions and—in rare instances—humans. Because wild species such as foxes and coyotes live in proximity to many urban areas, they are considered important carriers of the disease.

Fact!

More than ¾ of all respiratory infections in cats are caused by feline rhinotracheitis or calicivirus. These can cause cold-like clinical signs, pneumonia or other severe signs and are easily transmitted among cats through secretions. The good news: they can be prevented with regular vaccinations.

Vaccinate today!

If your dog frequents the park, day care or kennel, there's a much higher risk of contracting kennel cough and other contagious diseases. Keep your pets up to date on their vaccinations!

Even if your pet stays mostly indoors, many contagious diseases are airborne and, according to the American Humane Association, could even travel through an open window, so regular vaccinations are crucial regardless of whether your pet goes outside.

Did you know??

Disease immunity inherited by puppies and kittens thanks to their mothers' antibodies typically wears off at around 8 weeks of age. Since young animals' immune systems are still fragile at that stage, it's better to vaccinate your pet sooner rather than later.
