Heart Worm in Cats

Does anyone actually worry about this? I have talked to a few people I know who work in vet offices, and they say heart worm in cats is extremely rare.

It depends on where you live. It is not extremely rare where I live, even though I live in a cold region. It's humid here and we get mosquitoes and cats get heartworm. Revolution for cats, a topical flea treatment sold by prescrption is also used as a heartworm preventative/treatment in cats.

Yea.

I live in Florida so I am kind of concerned about it, but again, I know a few vet techs that say not to worry. They have actually given me samples of the revolution, which I may just get for fleas. He seems a lot more comfortable while he is on it. Not a single scratch.

How does your cat been lately? My close friend's cat in Tampa said their foster cat have this but she doesn't bothered at all.

I have never had a problem with heartworms in cats living in Texas but that doesn't mean I don't treat. Your vet would know best though.

Yea.

Revolution is just expensive is all. Probably a good preventative measure though. Oh well, it's just money.
