Cat Deworming

Deworming cats is important because if a parasite burden is bad, it can cause clinical signs, such as vomiting and diarrhea. Some parasites can also be transmitted to humans.

What are some types of parasites found in cats?

Roundworm, whipworm, lungworm, and tapeworm are some parasites found in cats.

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

There often aren’t any signs, unless it is a significant infestation.

Are worms dangerous to humans?

There are some worms that are transmittable to humans, such as roundworm and hookworm.

What is the deworming schedule?

A deworming schedule is tailored to your cat’s lifestyle.
