April Is National Heartworm Awareness Month

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. In most cases, these medications are safe and effective, and some of them offer protection from other parasites as well. To counter our region’s year-round population of mosquitoes, we strongly recommended year-round preventative medication.

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. Coughing is not a disease itself but can be associated with an underlying medial problem. When a cat coughs it usually is triggered by an irritation or inflammation in the bronchi or trachea.
