How does my cat contract heartworms?

Where do heartworms come from?

Cats contract heartworms from mosquitoes, so if you live in a typically heavy mosquito-populated area you should get your kitty tested for heartworms.

Spring is a good time for a Check up, so your vet can test your cat or kitten for heartworms, and then give you all the necessary feline heartworm treatments to combat parasites.
