Cat Deworming

Although it is an unappealing topic to discuss, worms are nevertheless necessary to address. Straightforward and regular treatment with dewormers will rid your cat of these internal parasites and the health problems they cause.

What are some types of parasites found in cats?

If my cat has worms, what symptoms should I look for?


Cats who have an intestinal parasite will often have diarrhea or loose stools that may or may not contain blood or mucus.

Are worms dangerous to humans?


Some intestinal parasites can be transmitted to humans through ingestion of the eggs. Basic hygiene will help prevent transmission (i.e. washing hands after handling feces).

Are there any side effects from deworming medication?
