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.
