Frequently Asked Questions About Heartworm Disease

Can cats get heartworm?

Yes, cats do catch heartworm disease from mosquitoes. While more common in dogs, heartworm can have serious health consequences for cats. There’s no cure if they do get infected and it can be fatal. Protect your pet by treating them with a veterinarian-approved preventive medication from myVCA.

Do indoor cats need heartworm prevention for protection?
