Interceptor

Heartworms and Intestinal Parasite Symptoms

Although heartworms can infect both dogs and cats, there are some slight differences in the symptoms each pet may have.

Signs of Heartworms in Dogs:
  • Cough
  • Exercise intolerance
  • Weight loss
  • Fainting
  • Edema
Signs of Heartworms in Cats:
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Coughing/gagging
  • Heavy/ fast breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Anorexia/weight loss
  • Lethargy
  • Seizures
  • Fainting
  • Lack of coordination

As with many other pet diseases, heartworms can be prevented if precautions are taken early on. For instance, Interceptor is a monthly heartworm medication that fights against heartworm, roundworm, hookworms and whipworms in your dog or cat. These parasites can be extremely harmful and potentially fatal to you dog or cat. Each of these internal parasites grows and multiplies inside your animal with very little external signs in the beginning stages of the disease.

Interceptor for dogs prevents deadly heartworm disease, and protects your dog against roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Interceptor for cats is the only oral monthly heartworm preventative that also removes adult roundworms and adult hookworms.

Prevent heartworm disease with Interceptor heartworm medicine


Symptoms of Hookworms and Roundworms

Unfortunately, most dogs and cats show very few visible signs of roundworms or hookworms. Be sure to pay extra close attention to your pet for the following symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Respiratory distress
  • Weakness
  • A dull or scruffy coat
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Malnutrition
Hookworm-infected dogs may be particularly weak, have abnormal weight loss, diarrhea and pale gums.
