Heartworm Prevention generally requires nothing more than monthly medication. Preventative Medications kill any larval heartworms present before they have a chance to develop into adult heartworms.

Coughing In Cats Veterinary Hospital In Philadelphia

Coughing is both an involuntary and voluntary response—we don’t have to think about activating it. Its purpose as an automatic reaction is to help keep the pharynx and airways free of foreign bodies and secretions.

Tidiness, placement and even the size of theirlitter boxcan all play a factor in deterring them away from using their litter pan. If you notice your Feline Friend not utilizing the litter box for his bathroom needs, this may serve as an indication of something being “wrong” with the litter box or that there is an underlying medical condition.
