Dirofilaria immitis infection
is the most commonly recognised heartworm infection of dogs and is enzootic in much
of the tropical and sub4ropical areas of the world, including Australia, Japan and
along the Atlantic coastline and Mississippi River in the USA.
However, the parasite is becoming more adaptable,
and infection is spreading to more temperate climates. A low incidence of infection
can be found in many areas of the USA and even Canada.
