In the warm season, not only ticks, but also mosquitoes are a danger to our four-legged friends. They are able to infect a furry friend with dirofilariasis.



TSN writes about it.

In the warm season, not only ticks, but also mosquitoes, which carry a deadly disease - dirofilariasis, are of great danger.

Infection occurs transmissively due to the bites of mosquitoes infected with invasive dirofilaria larvae.

Dogs, cats, and occasionally even people get sick.

Symptoms:

  • Knot formation on the skin
  • Fast fatiguability
  • Dyspnea
  • Cough
  • Weight loss
  • Fainting
  • Ascites, hydrothorax, edema
  • Acute respiratory failure

The best treatment is prevention. Treat your pet in time with drugs that simultaneously act against ectoparasites and dirofilaria. They can be purchased at veterinary pharmacies.
