Uncovering the Damage
You’re used to tracking heartworm disease from external signs—coughing, abnormal lung sounds, lethargy and more. But seeing the internal damage is even more sobering.

About These Maps
The population map and usage map (melarsomine dihydrochloride) are very similar.
- Together, they indicate that heartworm disease can be found in every populous area.
The areas with few or no red dots tend to be sparsely populated and have fewer veterinary practices.
- Far less testing is being conducted in those areas.
- That lack of testing or reporting doesn’t indicate an absence of heartworm infection.
