The American Heartworm Society recommends guidelines that include year-round prevention for dogs and cats. Yes, CATS! Cats get heartworm disease like dogs, via mosquitoes. The interesting fact is that of cats that tested heartworm positive, the majority were indoor only cats! Symptoms in cats often mimic asthma or allergic bronchitis. And while there is no cure, testing and prevention are recommended so that owners are prepared with treatment if acute respiratory distress symptoms are noted.
Fortunately there is a treatment for canine heartworm disease, but this disease is so much easier, and cheaper, to prevent. We recommend either Heartgard or the Interceptor/Sentinel team for monthly parasite prevention. Heartgard is a beefy chewable tablet that prevents heartworms, roundworms and hookworms. Interceptor is also a chewable tablet that prevents the same as Heartgard plus whipworms. Sentinel is Interceptor plus a flea preventive. For indoor/outdoor cats, we recommend Revolution, a monthly topical liquid applied over the shoulder blades. It prevents heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, fleas and ear mites. For indoor cats, we recommend either Revolution or Heartgard.
