Prescription Heartworm Prevention & Medicine for Cats
Finding the best heartworm medicine for your cat should be done in partnership with your veterinarian. You should consider where they spend most of their time—indoors or outdoors—and how often you want to give them heartworm medication. Oral and topical medicine should be administered monthly, while injectable heartworm medication should be administered every 6-12 months. Keep in mind that heartworm treatments for cats require a prescription from your veterinarian. It’s best to discuss your cat’s heartworm prevention needs with your veterinarian as undiagnosed heartworms can be fatal. Petco offers chewable tablets, topical solutions, and flavored tablets to cover your pet’s heartworm treatment needs.
