  • Many of the better heartworm prevention products also protect from intestinal parasites and even external parasites. Protecting your pet from these also protects you and your family from these parasites.
  • Heartworms are transmitted to cats and dogs through the bite of a mosquito.  Although it seems that freezing temperatures in the winter would kill off the mosquitoes that is very undependable.  Some mosquitoes lay cold tolerant eggs and others lay eggs that hatch at the first warm conditions.  Since it is such a devastating disease and we because we can never be sure the winter conditions will keep the mosquitoes at bay, heartworm prevention is recommended year round.
  • Start by 8 weeks of age and maintain monthly all year round.
  • We have all had the occasional mosquito buzzing around inside our house, so we know the mosquitos can get in.
  • Through studies looking at the infection rate of cats, we think it is about 10% of the rate of dogs.
  • Although cats handle heartworm disease differently than dogs, they can also suffer a massive even fatal response to the heartworm.
  • There is no routine or widely accepted treatment for cats who get heartworms.
  • Many of the better heartworm prevention products also protect from intestinal parasites and even external parasites. Protecting your pet from these also protects you and your family from these parasites.
