Heartworm prevention in catsby Alex Weber, DVM on 04/24/14
Normally, you wouldn't think about having your cat on heart worm prevention but the are not resistant to getting heart worms. Since we live in Florida, mosquitoes are everywhere and can spread heart worms to your cats. Symptoms are very similar to asthma or other respiratory problems. Getting your outdoor cats on a preventative monthly will help keep them much healthier and also protect them against fleas and intestinal parasites.
