Fortunately, there are safe and effective worming treatments available. These include oral, topical, and injectable medications. Some of these medications are also available without a prescription.
Some of the most common types of intestinal worms in cats include hookworms, roundworms, and tapeworms. Depending on the type of worm, you may notice symptoms such as loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhoea. If your cat is experiencing these symptoms, it is important that you contact a veterinarian immediately.
Symptoms of worms in cats can be serious, but there are ways to prevent them. First, if your cat has ingested worms, you need to remove them from your cat’s body. If you do not do this, the worms may travel to the intestines of your cat. In the worst case scenario, they can cause life-threatening anemia.
Roundworms are the most common type of intestinal worms in cats. They are also called ascarids. They are circular in cross-section and can be up to 6 inches long. They can be found in cats’ stools and tail fur. They can also be found in soil, plants, and grass.
Cats can become infected by eating infected prey, like rodents or small mammals. They can also ingest infected feces from infected areas.
Roundworms are a parasite that can be passed to humans. Adult roundworms can also be passed to kittens, who can be infected through the milk of the mother. Some people have had worms in their eyes, and others have had eye damage due to roundworm eggs.
