Worming

Feline roundworm live in a cat’s small intestine tract. Cats may become infected with roundworm through their mother’s milk, through hunting or through worm eggs in the environment. All cats can be infected with roundworms; kittens under 6 months are commonly infected. Roundworm are usually a creamy white in colour, 7 to 12 centimetres in length, have tapered ends and are often vomited up.

Tapeworm are also intestinal worms and may infect cats through fleas as an intermediate host or through cats eating small rodents containing larval tapeworm. They are long worms but generally only the small egg sacks resembling grains of rice are visible, usually in the cat’s faeces or in the area of the cat’s anus.

Signs of worm infestation can include:

We recommend worming kittens from approximately 6 weeks of age and advise worming adult cats every 3 months or more frequently if the cat is a known hunter or has flea issues.

For the effective treatment of feline worms we recommend PROFENDER spot-on or alternatively Drontal or Milbemax tablets.
