Heart Worm Medicine


As per available reports about 28 Conferences, 15 Workshops and 46 relevant Journals are presently dedicated exclusively to Heartworm medicine and about 5476 articles are being published on Heartworm Medicine.

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats and ferrets, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions and—in rare instances humans. 

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

Heartworm disease is a serious, progressive disease. The earlier it is detected, the better the chances the pet will recover. There are few, if any, early signs of disease when a dog or cat is infected with heartworms, so detecting their presence with a heartworm test administered by a veterinarian is important. The test requires just a small blood sample from your pet, and it works by detecting the presence of heartworm proteins. Some veterinarians process heartworm tests right in their hospitals while others send the samples to a diagnostic laboratory. In either case, results are obtained quickly. If your pet tests positive, further tests may be ordered.

Heartworm medicine does not stop or prevent the infection from occurring. Also, heartworm medicines do not kill adult heartworms that are already present. If an infected mosquito bites any animal, he/she may still be infected with the larvae. A heartworm medicine kills off the larval heartworms that made it into the animal’s body during the past month. The heartworms will die at certain stages of development, before they can become adult heartworms. The heartworm medicine is only needed once a month because it takes longer than a month for the larvae to develop to a stage where they reach the body tissues. 

Some heartworm medicines require a monthly administration, while others work even longer. There are a number of drugs currently in use as heartworm preventives. Heartworm medicines can be administered orally, topically or by injection. Oral heartworm medicine includes Heartgard for dogs and cats, Heartgard plus for dogs, interceptor for dogs and cats and sentinel for dogs. Topically administered heartworm medicine includes revolution for cats and dogs and advantage multi for dogs and cats. Proheart 6 is heartworm medicine that is administered by injection. 

Market Analysis:

North America led the market with a share of 34.3% in 2014, which is expected to get eroded as emerging economies such as Brazil, India, China, Middle-East and parts of South-East Asia increase their stakes in the market. The emerging economies have observed a healthy growth in the veterinary care sector and it is expected that Asia-Pacific region which currently accounts for a share of 19.0% will grow with the fastest CAGR of 6.8% till 2019.
