Cats can get heartworm infection through the simple bite of an infected mosquito.

The larval worms then start their journey through the body, ultimately affecting the heart, blood vessels and lungs. > > > > A cat's body is designed to respond and kill foreign invaders, including heartworm larvae before they develop into adults. As the cat's body responds, the intense inflammatory reaction causes severe damage to the lung tissue. This disease state is clinically recognized as Heartworm Associated Respiratory Disease or H.A.R.D. Once this damage to the lung tissue occurs, it is not reversible and there is no treatment to remove the adult heartworms from a cat. > > > > With this new information we are now recommending ALL CATS be put on Revolution year round. Revolution is a broad spectrum parasiticide that in addition to preventing heartworm also prevents intestinal parasites, ear mites and fleas. > > > > Please contact us if you would like to discuss prevention for your cat. > > > > Sincerely, > > > > The Doctors and Staff at Roscoe Village Animal Hospital > > > > > > > > _______________________________________________ > > Felvtalk mailing list > > Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org > > http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org > > _________________________________________________________________ > Show them the way!
