Heartworms in Cats
Support Your Cat’s Heart
If your cat has been diagnosed with heartworms, they’ll need all the support they can get. Give them powerful all-natural supplements as a part of their comprehensive care plan. Heartworms can be fatal. It is important to use any vet-prescribed medication, and take supplements as supportive care.

About Heartworm in Cats
Heartworms are a potentially deadly parasite (Dirofilaria immitis) that can be spread to pets through mosquito bites. Once infected, the heartworm larvae grow and mature in the cat’s bloodstream over the next six months. This can stress the heart, blood vessels, and lungs, even causing sudden respiratory distress when the worms die.
Heartworm is much more common in dogs than in cats. Unfortunately, cats with heartworms do not usually exhibit symptoms like they do in dogs. Cats may show the heartworm symptoms below, but they may not exhibit any symptoms at all.
It’s estimated that 25% to 50% of cats infected with heartworm survive. Conventional preventative medication is highly recommended.
Symptoms of Heartworm in Cats

Available Heartworm Disease Support for Cats
NHV’s Heartworm Kit for cats is designed to give the herbal support needed to help relieve cat heartworm symptoms when used alongside the conventional treatment of cat heartworms.
HEARTY HEART - This natural blend will help support heart function. The mixture of herbs, such as Hawthorne, acts as a cardiotonic by dilating the vessels and coronary arteries thereby improving the metabolic process and blood supply to the heart and the rest of the body.
INULIN-PK - The ingredients in this herbal formula will help strengthen the immune system as well as repair the damage done by the parasites. These potent herbs include Elecampane, which has a paralyzing effect on the central nervous system of the worms. Wormwood is an herb that expels intestinal worms and parasite infestations, which aids in the support of cats with heartworm disease.
