National Heartworm Awareness Month
April is National Heartworm Awareness Month and Annie Blumenfeld, a sophomore at Fairfield Warde High School in Fairfield, CT has been working hard to spread awareness of heartworm disease. On March 10, 2014, CT State Rep. Tony Hwang appeared in support of Annie as she testified in support of her proposed bill to raise awareness about heartworm disease in dogs. HB-5422, An Act Concerning Awareness of Heartworm Disease and the Standard Dog Licensing Form, will help raise awareness concerning heartworm prevention in dogs by requiring the dog licensing form to contain a check-off box for the purpose of raising awareness that such dog receives heartworm preventative medication.
