Heartworm Symptoms

Tick-Borne Diseases

Canine heartworm disease symptoms include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Coughing

Your veterinarian can perform a simple blood test that can verify the presence of heartworms. All dogs should be tested for heartworm infection before starting a preventive program.
