Cat Worming

No matter if your four-legged buddy is just a kitten or a grown-up cat, unfortunately, they can get affected by parasites at any time. The best way to help your feline companion is by familiarising yourself with the reasons why those unwanted visitors appear and what you can do to prevent worms in cats.

Why do cats get worms?

While the method of infestation typically depends on the type of worm, the most frequent reason cats get worms is by coming into contact with worm eggs or infected soil. If cats are spending most of their time outside, they can often turn to their hunting roots and catch rodents infected with worm larvae. By biting or ingesting infected tissue, the worm larvae will then grow in the cat’s intestines. Another way roundworm in cats can be contracted is if a kitten is nursing from an infected mother. This is why worming kittens as soon as your vet suggests can help prevent the risk of contamination. While the most common type of intestinal worms in cats are roundworms, representing 75% of infestation cases, there are also multiple cases of hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms in cats that need just as much prevention.

Symptoms

A cat that has intestinal worms infestation can show symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting and loss of appetite. While some of the symptoms can be mild, if the cat is heavily infected, they can become quite severe and can even cause anaemia.

Cat worms treatment and preventing Parasites

With roundworms being so common, even in kittens, the best way to protect your cat from dealing with unwanted visitors is by worming them regularly from a young age. Vets recommend treating kittens for worms every 2 weeks in the first 3-8 weeks of life, repeating treatment monthly until they reach 6 months and every 1-3 months for adult cats.

The most popular and effective products are cat worming tablets, such as Drontal for cats and spot on solutions such as Dronspot, that help cats eliminate all types of intestinal worms. Worming tablets such as Drontal can be given either on an empty stomach or can be mixed with food for easier ingestion. Other solutions can come in a paste or granules form such as Panacur for cats.

To prevent worm infestation, make sure you watch what your cat eats, especially if they like spending time outdoors and never allow your cat to eat raw or undercooked meat. Also, make sure to keep the litterbox as clean as possible. If you have more than one cat and only one of them shows symptoms of worm infestation, keep their litter box, water and food bowl separate and make sure to take all of them to the vet as soon as possible.
