Many veterinarians advise giving Heartgard year round. Depending on your cats risk factors for heartworm disease, your veterinarian may recommend treatment only during the mosquito season. If given seasonally, start giving medication within 30 days of the cat's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose needs to be given within 30 days after the cat's last exposure to mosquitoes. Ask your veterinarian regarding his/her recommendations.
Heartgard for Cats is generally taken as a treat. Tablets need to be chewed so break tablets into small pieces and administer if your cat has a tendency to swallow without chewing. Make sure food is available during the day of treatment.

If you have trouble giving Heartgard to your cat, contact your veterinarian for further instructions.

It will stop the growth and reproduction of susceptible bacteria so your pets infection will resolve. Your pets symptoms should improve. It can take several doses before improvement is observed. If your pet seems worse or his/her symptoms are not resolving after all medication is completed, call your veterinarian.
