Cat Worms

Cats are also at risk for becoming carriers of internal parasites that could result in serious illness and possible death. Kittens, in particular, are more prone to cat worms because they could have contracted the parasites from their mother upon birth. As with dogs, cats can be carriers of hookworm, roundworm, tapeworm and whipworms too.

A great first step in helping rid your furry feline friend of these awful cat worms is to bring him or her into see Dr. Zorn. This step will help us determine what is going on with your furry companion. We love seeing new and regular patients every day. If we can help make them and keep them happy, healthy and parasite free, we have accomplished our daily mission.

Did you know that both indoor and outdoor felines can contract cat worms? When the outdoor cats consume raw meat (from their prey), they can ingest anything and everything that critter had, including worms. Indoor cats can also be carriers by eating their own waste or by being around other cats with worms.

Fortunately, we do carry a great selection of different treatments to help eliminate and prevent recurrences of the unwanted internal parasites. The best way to have peace of mind is to keep up with your monthly doses of worm medication. Often times you will be able to buy medication that combines other parasite prevention, such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes with the worming benefits.

Don’t put off having your kitty being tested for cat worms. Once you start seeing noticeable changes in your cat’s behavior or eating habits, it might be too late. Let us help prevent that from happening, call us today!
