Heartworm in Hartley: Too close to home!
With each new dog infected, the risk of heartworm increases. New research shows that Heartworm is making its way towards us; with infected dogs being found in Bathurst, Orange, Hazelbrook and even in Hartley! Heartworm is spread through mosquitoes and there are 12 species of mosquito known to transmit heartworm. 10 out of those 12 will bite during both day and night. Some studies have shown foxes and other wild dogs contributing to the spread of Heartworm in our area as well. The change in climate conditions is yet another factor.
An infected dog or cat will often not show any signs before major damage is done. It takes three to five years for clinical symptoms to develop. Prevention is the best form of protection for your pet. There are many different products available, from a yearly injection to monthly tablets.
Don’t wait! Protect your dog before it’s too late.
