Heartworm Remains Serious Threat to U.S. Pets

American Heartworm Society survey reveals new incidence trends

From Baton Rouge to Boston to San Antonio and Seattle, heartworms pose a serious health threat to the nation’s four-legged family members. According to a recent survey conducted by the American Heartworm Society (AHS), every U.S. state has pets with heartworms. But while states like Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas have consistently had high heartworm rates, veterinarians participating in the survey reported that infections are also on the rise in unexpected locales like Washington, North Dakota, and Massachusetts.
