It’s that time of year again when the weather gets sticky and humid, and our homes get bombarded by tiny pests. You know which ones we’re talking about… MOSQUITOES!
Mosquitoes and Heartworm Disease
One mosquito-borne disease that can affect household pets like cats and dogs (and even horses) is Heartworm Disease. In some cases with mosquito-borne diseases, mosquitoes are just carriers of a virus. However, Heartworm Disease is not the same. mosquitoes carry the actual Heartworm larvae, and, once injected into a pet through the mosquito bite, heartworms will live and grow in large blood vessels located around the lungs.
