Cat Deworming

Worms? Yuck! Don’t worry – it happens to the best of pets. Our veterinarians can help you to get the correct dewormer for your cat and can discuss ways to help prevent reinfestation. Give the clinic a call for more information.

What are some internal cat parasites?

Common intestinal parasites found in cats and kittens are roundworms and tapeworms. Roundworms may be transmitted to kittens in utero, or by contact with feces from another infected cat or dog. Tapeworms are transmitted through fleas or ingesting small rodents like mice.

What are worm infestation symptoms in cats?

Kittens infested with roundworms may have a pot bellied appearance. Or it is possible an infested animal will pass live worms in its feces. Roundworms resemble “spaghetti,” while tapeworms may resemble grains of “rice.”

Do worms affect humans?

Some types of worms can affect humans. Please contact Park Road Veterinary Clinic for more details.

What is the deworming schedule?

For kittens, our veterinarians recommend deworming every two weeks starting at two weeks of age and up until they are four-months-old. For adult cats, especially ones that go outdoors and/or hunt, it is recommended that they are dewormed every three months (four times per year). Give Park Road Veterinary Clinic a call for more information.

Any deworming medication side effects?

The deworming medications available today have very minimal side effects. The most common side effect is GI upset – vomiting and/or diarrhea.
