Learning More About HeartWorm Prevention Awareness Month with Lee County Humane Society

According to the Lee County Humane Society, in one night, your dog can be bitten by a mosquito up to 80 times.

But, it only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to transmit heart worms to dogs who do not have the treatment.

But, heart worm can be treated and prevented,which could save you a lot of money in the long run.

If your dog has a persistent cough, is losing weight, doesn’t want to exercise, vomiting or fatigue, these are the symptoms of heart worm. So, contact your veterinarian.
