Most pet owners know that heartworm is a real danger, but did you know that mosquitoes are the sole vector of heartworm? Regular preventative treatments for dogs and cats are highly recommended by vets, even if your pets don’t regularly spend time outside. Mosquito Authority can eliminate mosquitoes from your yard, which can be just one step for you to take to keep your pets safe. 

For information and updates about heartworm, we recommend checking out the American Heartworm Society (AHS) website. The AHS was established in 1974 to educate the public and veterinary professionals about the dangers of heartworm disease. Their website contains great resources for pet owners including “incidence maps” to see the data on heartworm occurrences in your region.
