Cat Worming Treatments

Cat worming treatments are essential to protect cats and kittens from a range of common worms, including hookworm, roundworm and tapeworm. Often, it’s not immediately obvious that a cat has worms. Signs to look out for include weight loss, vomiting, diarrhoea, irritation of the anus and failure to thrive. In particular, a kitten with worms can get ill very quickly. So the best thing you can do for your pet is to protect them from getting worms in the first place with regular cat worming treatments. Cat worming treatments typically come in either tablet or paste form, in appealing flavours such as liver. We stock a range of cat worm treatments for adult cats and kittens of various sizes. Reputable brands to choose from include Milbemax, Profender, Drontal and more. Also check out our cat flea, tick & worming treatments.

 

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

How often should I worm my cat?

The frequency of worming your cat can depend on various factors, including their age, lifestyle, and the type of product used. Generally, it's recommended to worm adult cats every 2-3 months. However, kittens require more frequent treatment, usually every 2 weeks until they are 12 weeks old, then monthly until they are 6 months old. It's always best to consult with your vet for a worming schedule that's tailored to your cat's specific needs.

 

How do I know if my cat has worms?

Common signs that your cat may have worms include weight loss, a dull coat, vomiting, diarrhea, or visible worms in their feces or around their rear. If you suspect your cat has worms, it's crucial to consult your veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment.

 

Can indoor cats get worms?

Yes, indoor cats can still get worms, although they may be at a lower risk than outdoor cats. They can ingest worm eggs or larvae from contaminated soil on shoes, fleas, or even from raw food. Regular worming is recommended for indoor cats as well.
