Veterinary student Elizabeth Whitt is back with us today to talk about heartworms. She walks us through what heartworms are, the impact they have on our pets, and how important prevention is. We get a little carried away with the discussion, and we go a bit longer than our average episode, but we feel passionate about this topic.
Here are links to the information we talked about today:
- Heartworm Life Cycle video from the American Heartworm Society
- Heartworm Incidence Maps from the American Heartworm Society
- Microfilaria Under a Microscope video
- Heartworm Extraction Surgery video *Warning: Graphic video*
