Feline Flea and Heartworm Protection

photo-1455970022149-a8f26b6902ddPreventative medicine is important in managing the cost of caring for your pet. Keeping your feline free of heartworms, fleas and other parasites is much cheaper, easier and safer than treating them for a full-blown disease.

Parasites like heartworm, roundworm, fleas and ear mites are the most common disease for felines and canines to come across. Since these parasites are so common, it's all the more important to prevent the on-set of the diseases. Prevention and protection against fleas and heartworm is critical for successful treatment. It is also important that you use preventative medicine properly.

When deciding on a medication to prevent heartworm and fleas, it is important to first consult your veterinarian.  It is also important that prior to flea and heartworm preventative treatment, your feline is assessed and tests negative for parasites.

There are oral or topical medications for preventing fleas and heartworms in felines. Many topical solutions also treat other parasites such as hookworms, roundworms and mites. The downside to oral medications is the difficulty of getting your feline to take it. In many instances, topical applications for heartworm and flea prevention are preferable.  More often than not, we suggest Revolution for our patients.
