Have you thought about
protecting your cat from mosquitoes?  
Hot
and humid summer days bring mosquitoes that that carry feline heartworm
disease.  While mosquitoes are just an annoyance to us, they can actually threaten the health and well being of your pet.  Fortunately, there are simple preventative steps that you can take to keep
your pet happy and healthy.  Here are a
few signs to be on the lookout for this summer.
Signs of Infection:
Vomiting

Diarrhea

Rapid and Difficult Breathing

Coughing

Gagging

Loss of Appetite

Lethargy

Weight Loss


Heartworm
disease occurs when a mosquito bites a cat and allows entry of heartworm
larvae.  Over time, these larvae grow in
the muscle tissues, but they can cause problems before they are fully
grown.  By taking preventative steps, you
can keep your pets healthy for a long time to come.
