Cat Deworming

Deworming your cat is not only important for your cat’s health but also your families. Some forms of parasites are transmissible to us. Routine deworming and fecal exams are recommended especially in outdoor cats, kittens and strays.

What are some internal cat parasites?


Common intestinal parasites are roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, coccidia, and giardia.

What are worm infestation symptoms in cats?


Most of the time there are no signs at all, but you may notice loose stools, weight loss, or even segments of worms in your cat’s stool.

Do worms affect humans?


Yes, some “worms” are definitely transmissible to people from your cat, especially children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with impaired immune systems.

What is the deworming schedule?


A deworming schedule should be discussed with your veterinarian as we will tailor a protocol to your individual pet’s lifestyle.
