Heartworm Testing for Cats
Testing your cat for heartworms is very crucial to your cat’s overall health and wellness. If you don’t know if your cat has ever been tested for heartworms, please call your vet and make an appointment today. If you purchase or adopt a cat, please ask for vaccination records which should include a previous heartworm test and whether or not the cat is on a current heartworm prevention medication. Heartworms are transmitted primarily via mosquitoes. Unlike dogs, cats do not show a lot of symptoms right away and sometimes none at all until it’s too late. The best way to protect your cat is to test your cat. It involves a simple blood test at your vet’s office. It’s quick and easy. The next step is keeping your cat on a monthly heartworm prevention medication. Talk to your animal hospital Marietta, GA to learn more.
