• Hello I was just wondering what is the heart worm prevention? Does frontline plus has it ? or is the treatment included in the early care plan? I'm just wondering because I can't find anywhere. If the plan does not cover, which brand should I get it for my baby cat? Thank you

    Hi Juliana,
    I recommend that you talk to your local vet about this question. There are many different medications that are in heartworm preventives, most are in a drug class called the avermectins. However, there are some newer ones that don’t fall into this category. Unfortunately, Frontline Plus does not prevent heartworms. The preventive that will be best for your pet will depend on where you live, the environment that you pet is exposed to, and your pet’s overall health. Your vet knows your cat and they will be able to advise you on which product will be best.
