The heartworm is transmitted by an Aedes, Anopheles or Culex type mosquito, which affects all dogs regardless of their breed, age or environment in which they live. When the larvae are inside the dog, it takes only 6 weeks for them to turn into worms, which invade from the pulmonary blood vessels to the heart.
It is very easy to prevent this disease and very difficult and risky to cure it as well as quite expensive.
