Feline Heartworms -- Feline heartworms(HWs) are a parasite more commonly thought of in dogs but has been seen with an increased frequency in this areaís cats. The regional prevalence parallels that in dogs but at a lower rate (roughly 5 to 20% that seen in dogs). While this parasite, which is spread by mosquitoes, affects outdoor cats more frequently, indoor cats are also at risk- accounting for up to 1/3 of diagnosed cases. Once established, the adult HWs live 2-3 years before being eliminated by the catís own immune system.
