Heartworm Prevention in cats

 

Heartworm infection takes place when a mosquito carrying infective, microscopic-size heartworm larvae, bites into a cat for a blood meal. The average time from when the microscopic parasites enter the host until the females develop into mature worms and produce offspring is approximately eight months.
