Feline Internal Parasite Preventative - Heartgard Cats


Hialeah Gardens, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/28/2014 -- Internal parasites are potentially dangerous not only to cats but humans as well. Some internal parasites such as the hookworm, is a Zoonotic disease, meaning a disease of animals that is transmitted to humans. This hookworm can penetrate the human skin causing a condition called cutaneous larval migrants, more commonly called creeping eruption or ground itch in lament terms. Don’t let your cat become infected with internal parasites, use Heartgard for cats and prevent the disease from spreading to your family.

Ailment Associated with Product:
The hookworm searches for a host at the stage three life cycles. The hookworm will hook onto the skin of a host, penetrating the skin deep. Once inside the host, they are carried through the blood vessels to the heart and then into the lungs. The worms now begin to move quickly, piercing through the pulmonary alveoli, reaching the bronchial tree to the pharynx (lung and throat region) and the host swallows them. The larva then move toward the intestines where they will mature, reproduce, and thrive. A pet infected with hookworms will display severe diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, become weak, develop a poor hair coat, and lose weight.

The early stages of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) and the hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum, A. brasiliense, and Uncinaria stenocephala) do not permit symptoms in cats. It is not until the parasites have thrived within the pet will symptoms be noted. The heartworm is transmitted into a cat through the mosquito bite. As the mosquito takes his blood meal, he injects the larvae stage heartworm into the dermal layer of the cat’s body. Once the heartworm has matured into mature larvae he will travel into the blood stream of the cat until he reaches the heart.

After several years definite signs will develop as the parasite reproduces, invading the heart and lungs. A cat will develop a cough due to worms beginning to crowd the lungs. This cough could be very mild or severe. Your pet may also appear to be tired or worn out. You would notice these symptoms quickly in a high spirited pet. Loss of appetite and weight loss are also common signs your pet could be infested with heartworms as well as jaundice and fever. Jaundice, or a yellowing of the mucus membranes, occurs when the liver is failing. These signs are more serious and are reaching the stage of no return.
