Heartgard must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Heartgard can be given year round, although some veterinarians may recommend giving it only during the mosquito season. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the cat's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be given within 30 days after the cat's last exposure to mosquitoes. Most cats will accept the chewable tablet as a treat. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the cat to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Heartgard Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to cats that normally swallow treats whole or may be mixed with a small amount of cat food.
