There’s Nothing to Love About Heartworms.
Heartworm disease in cats isn’t just serious: it can be fatal. A single bite from an infected mosquito can put your cat at risk (yep, you read that right, just one bite!).
Why Should I Care About Heartworms?
- Just one infected mosquito can start an infection, and this infection can kill a cat.
- There’s no approved treatment to kill adult heartworms in cats,4 which is why prevention is so very important.
- Even if it isn’t deadly, heartworm infection in cats can cause permanent lung damage known as heartworm associated respiratory disease (HARD).5
Is My Indoor Cat at Risk?
There’s no way to completely prevent mosquitoes from entering your home. In one study, more than 25 percent of cats diagnosed with heartworms were described by their owners as indoor-only cats.6Prevent heartworm disease with REVOLUTION »
