As most pet owners already know, heartworm treatment for cats and dogs isn’t the same. Never, under any circumstances, should you give your cat heartworm treatment that is designed for a dog – or vice versa.
No matter how you look at it, heartworm treatment isn’t easy.
Heartworms are a very serious condition, as the worms will feast on the vital areas around your cat’s heart.
Treating your cat for heartworms may indeed be no treatment at all, as cats are extremely difficult to treat.
Some cats may not be able to take a certain type of heartworm treatment medicine. Depending on the side affects and how the medicine affects the cat, some breeds may not be able to take some of the better medicines.
With all diseases, prevention is a lot better and safer than treatment.
