Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve.

Administer all prescribed medication(s) as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

Consider administering milbemycin (Interceptor for Cats) or ivermectin (Heartgard for Cats®)or selamectin (Revolution® for Cats) to all cats in the household. Milbemycin, ivermectin and selamectin are the only heartworm preventatives approved for use in cats and should be considered for cats living in highly endemic areas, where the incidence of heartworm infection is higher than most people realize.
