What are Common Symptoms of Heartworms in Cats like the Korat?

Heartworm disease can affect both dogs and cats. The disease has no preference for age, sex or breed. Cats of all breeds including the Korat can be susceptible to the disease. The best way to protect your cat is to place him on a monthly prevention medication for heartworm disease. You can do this by setting up an appointment with your vet. Your vet will need to first test your cat for heartworms. If the test is negative then a medication in the form of a pill or shot can be given regularly to protect against heartworms. If your cat does get heartworms, you may not notice any symptoms or you may see symptoms such as coughing, asthma, vomiting, decreased appetite, and weight loss. Difficulty walking, fainting, seizures, and the buildup of fluid in the abdomen have also been known to occur. Contact your St. Vital, Manitoba veterinarian immediately if you notice any of these symptoms in your cat. Learn more at this website Sage Creek Animal Hospital.
