'Heartworm' is actually a parasitic roundworm, only drawing its name from its last adult cycle, which is spent mainly in the Right Ventricle of the Heart.

From larvae to adult, however, it lives in a couple different places:

1. The stomach of a Mosquito

2. At the site of the Mosquito bite on the animal, under the skin

3. In the muscles of the chest and abdomen

4. Bloodstream to Heart [Pulmonary Artery]
