Yeah, heartworms are real. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes.

Our American foxhound rescue had it... and I shopped around vets in order to give us an Rx for broad spectrum treatment product in lieu of what was most commonly stocked and agreed to test him every 6 months. (Sorry the dog now is 16 and he was 1 year at time of diagnosis so I don't remember the product name - but it is important to be a broad spectrum product) He tested negative at a year and a half.

added in edit... forgot to say hope your dog recovers.
