Description

Dr. Matt Miller, DACVIM (Cardiology) discusses why it's important to prevent heartworm in non-endemic areas of the United States. Dr. Miller currently works in a non-endemic area (e.g., Arizona) compared to where he used to live (e.g., Texas). So, how should veterinarians and veterinary technicians be handling heartworm disease in non-endemic regions? Should pets still be treated?

Dr.Miller also discusses how to diagnose heartworm disease/infection in cats. Veterinarians and veterinary technicians living in an endemic area must feel comfortable accurately diagnosing heartworm disease in this unique feline species. Cats can develop clinical signs of heartworm disease in the pre-adult stage (e.g.,seen as respiratory signs or secondary to adult infestation.
