Heartworm Treatment for Cats and Dogs
The treatment for heartworms is different for cats and dogs.
Do not ever give medicine intended for a cat to your dog or vice
Once your pet has heartworms the treatment is not easy. You
want to rid your pet of heartworms but many factors need to be
looked at before proceeding. Your veterinarian will have to do
many tests to determine how many worms your pet has, how it is
affecting your pet and if your pet can handle the side effects of
Let's first look at the treatment of heartworms for dogs. The
first thing that will have to be done is an evaluation of your
dog and what treatment is necessary to stabilize them for
treatment for heartworms and then the elimination of all the
heartworms and larvae.
The adult heartworms will be killed first, then comes the
larvae and the microfilaria. Both have to kill with different
treatments. There are side effects that can happen that are very
dangerous to your dog while ridding them of the adult heartworm.
As the adult heartworms die they can become lodged in the
arteries. The arteries are already inflamed by the presence of
these worms but as the worms decompose the arteries can become
more inflamed and your dog will need to be watched carefully for
things like this that may occur during treatment. Sometimes,
according to how infested your dog is with heartworms, he may
need to stay at the hospital for proper care. Talking with your
veterinarian will ease your mind and let you know the best
options for your dog.
The treatment for heartworms in cats may be no treatment. Cats
are very hard to treat for heartworms. The side effects of the
dying worms cause at least one third of the cats treated life
threatening problems. Cats can not also take some of the
medications available for eliminating heartworms. Your
veterinarian will have to do many tests to determine if your cat
should undergo treatment.
As with all disease prevention is better than the treatment.
Before your pet can get heartworm disease talk with your
veterinarian and find medications that can prevent heartworms in
your pet from ever happening.
