What is heartworm disease in cats?

Heartworm disease is a severe, potentially fatal condition. If you have a dog, you’re probably already familiar with heartworm treatment for dogs. You may be surprised to learn, however, that cats should also take heartworm medication. While heartworm in cats is much different than it is in dogs, the mode of action of a heartworm is the same for both. Transmitted by mosquitoes from an infected animal to your pet, these foot-long worms make a home in your cat’s lungs, blood vessels, and heart. Cats normally have fewer worms than dogs, but this doesn’t mean they can’t still do serious damage. Heartworms in cats can lead to a condition known as HARD (heartworm-associated respiratory disease). Because heartworm disease progresses slowly, it can often have devastating effects to your cat before you even realize an infection is present. You may wonder how to treat heartworms in cats. Sadly, heartworm treatments are safe for dogs, but they are not for cats. For this reason, prevention is especially important for cats.

What are the signs of heartworm in cats?

Some cats may show no symptoms of a heartworm infection, and some could show obvious signs of a serious problem. While severity can run the gamut, the signs to look for include:

  • Seizures
  • Fainting
  • Trouble walking
  • Weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Labored breathing/attacks that seem like asthma
  • Decreased appetite
  • Coughing
  • Accumulation of fluid in the abdomen
  • Collapse
  • Death

Because cats may be unknowingly suffering from a serious, harmful infection, heartworm prevention for cats is imperative.

What is the best heartworm medication for cats?

Your veterinarian can discuss the different options with you to determine the best heartworm prevention for your cat. While over-the-counter heartworm prevention for cats is not available due to FDA regulations, this should not deter pet parents from protecting their cats. Simply discuss heartworm treatment for cats with your vet at your next visit! If you’re looking for cat dewormer, some with and some without heartworm protection, Allivet carries all the best brands! Some of the best options for heartworm medication for cats are:

  • Revolution or Revolution Plus: Revolution is a topical heartworm prevention for cats. It uses Selamectin to prevent heartworms. It also offers protection from fleas, sarcoptic mange, and ear mites. For broad-spectrum protection, Revolution Plus contains both Selamectin and Sarolaner to prevent the same parasites as Revolution.
