Heartworm disease is a serious, progressive disease. The earlier it is detected, the better the chances the pet will recover. Annual testing is necessary even when dogs are on heartworm prevention year-round, to ensure that the prevention program is working.
The test requires just a small blood sample from your pet and can be processed here at Acequia Animal Hospital with results in 10 minutes.
If your dog has had any ticks in the past year we also offer a more comprehensive heartworm test with tick-borne disease panel.
Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes and it only takes one bite from a mosquito to acquire heartworm. Many mosquitoes and ticks do survive through the winter months. Even indoor dogs are susceptible to heartworm disease.
If your dog tests positive for heartworm disease further testing should be done. Heartworm preventatives are highly effective, but not 100% effective. If you don't get your dog tested, you won't know if your dog needs treatment.
The American Heartworm Society has a great website with lots of information including a map showing the incidents of heartworm disease in the United States and a life cycle of the heartworm.
