Cat Flea, Tick and Heartworm


Ah, when spring has finally sprung, our thoughts turn to spring cleaning, digging in your garden and nightly walks after a long winter! Before you embark on outdoor activities, take inventory of your furry friends preventatives. Unfortunately for our cats, fleas, ticks, and the mosquitos that carry heartworm larvae also love springtime.

Even though your cat needs heartworm prevention along with flea and tick prevention all year long, these pests thrive in warmer weather. Before the summer months, it is an ideal time to get back in the habit of giving your cat their monthly prevention. Fleas cause major skin irritation for your cat and often invade your home! Heartworms are parasitic organisms that can reach 10–12 inches in length. These worms live within the chambers of the heart, as well as within the adjacent blood vessels. An individual worm can survive 5–7 years. Heartworms reproduce within the host animal, and a single dog can host up to 250 worms. Over time, the worms impair heart and lung function, and in severe cases, can result in death.

If this all sounds pretty scary, it is. Heartworm is a serious condition. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to help prevent heartworm in your pet.

We highly recommend Revolution Plus to protect your cat inside and out against fleas, ticks, ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, and heartworm disease. It is an amazing topical product that is applied once monthly for your feline friend’s all-around protection and health. The best part, you can earn Zoetis Pet Care Rewards while protecting your pet!


As always, please consult with your cat’s veterinarian to determine the best prevention for your individual pet! If you have questions or would like to pick up your feline preventative today call (845) 395-9200!
