Mosquitoes spread heartworm larvae through their bites. Since mosquitoes can easily get indoors, even cats who rarely go outside can get heartworms. Without preventive medication to stop them, heartworm larvae grow into adults 5" long and wreak havoc on your cat's respiratory system.
In cats, heartworms create a condition called Heartworm Associated Respiratory Disease (HARD). While many cats with HARD show no signs of disease, HARD can cause coughing, listlessness, appetite loss, vomiting, weight loss, rapid heart rate, blindness, fainting, convulsions, collapse, and even sudden death.
