Indoor Cats are Not Immune – Vets Suggest Monthly Protection If your cat is coughing or having trouble breathing, it could mean heartworms. New research has revealed that these signs, which are often misdiagnosed as feline asthma or allergic bronchitis, could indicate a cat is suffering from Heartworm Associated Respiratory Disease (HARD). Unfortunately, there is no medication available to treat heartworm disease in cats, so prevention is crucial. Cats get infected with heartworm larvae from a mosquito bite, and since mosquitoes often get inside, both indoor and outdoor cats are at risk. Veterinarians recommend giving cats a monthly heartworm preventive which also protects against other parasites. Produced for Pfizer
