This is a question to ask the vet who is treating the dog.

Depends on how much damage was done.

Ask your vet, (You are seeing a vet??? If not get there now) maybe once cured as long as any other dog.

I'm not aware of the time a dog with heartworms might have left, but I do know that there are treatments available for them. I could not describe these treatments to you, as I only know of it from some distant friends who have had dogs with heartworms.
But, you can ask your dog's vet.
