Feline Heartworm Disease

Heartworm disease in cats is on the rise in Connecticut. The incidence of heartworm disease in cats ranges from 1% to 2%, similar to the incidence of Feline Leukemia Virus.

As in the dog, heartworm disease is passed by infected mosquitoes. However, in the cat, diagnosis is difficult. Blood tests, ultrasound and radiographs are needed to confirm the diagnosis. Symptoms of heartworm disease may include coughing, asthma like attacks, vomiting, lack of appetite and weight loss. Unfortunately, the first sign in some cases is sudden collapse and death. There is no successful treatment of feline heartworm disease.

Prevention is the best way to keep your cat free of this disease. We recommend Advantage Multi or Feline Heartguard for safe and effective protection. No test is required to start these preventatives.

Please ask if you have any questions regarding Feline Heartworm Disease and the best way to keep your cat Happy and Healthy!!
