Cat Worming

Worming

We will recommend worming your new kitten at their primary vaccination appointments and will give you information then about future worming protocols. As a general rule, cats going outdoors should be wormed every 3 months with a product effective against all commonly encountered worms.

It is particulary important to regularly worm cats that are hunters. These cats are much more likely to be infested with tapeworm, seen as ‘rice grain’ segments at the cat's anus or in it’s faeces. Since fleas can carry the intermediate stage of some tapeworms a cat can become infested after ingesting a flea during grooming.

It is therefore very important to ensure an adequate flea control program is also in place in order to minimise the risk of worm problems.
