Effect of Reservoir Host and Climactic Conditions on Emerging Heartworm Disease: Part 2
This publication will explain how the effect of change in reservoir host, reservoir movement, and climactic events propagated the expansion of heartworm disease into non-endemic areas. The main premise is that changes in climactic conditions may have created environments in which the vector has increased survivability. Climatic and host changes have combined to expand the geographical area of heartworm disease.
