It only takes one heartworm – carrying mosquito to infect your pet. Mosquitoes can get indoors, so even though your pet may not go outside, they are still susceptible. Adult heartworms can survive in your dog for up to seven years. Pets that are not on a monthly heartworm preventative are at an increased risk of contracting this potentially fatal disease.
