Cat Deworming

Cat Deworming

We recommend deworming to protect your cat from internal parasites as well as the members of your household.

What are some types of parasites found in cats?


The most common types of parasites are roundworms, hookworms, lungworms, and tapeworms.


What symptoms should I look for if my cat has worms?


Things to watch for are intermittent diarrhea, itching, and weight loss. There also could be no symptoms, so regular checkups are highly recommended.


Are worms dangerous to humans?


Yes, internal parasites are zoonotic, meaning they can be passed from your pets to humans. Washing your hands after handling your cat is always recommended.


What is the deworming schedule?


We recommend deworming your adult cat every three months. For kittens, your doctor will discuss a deworming program with you at your kitten exam.


Are there any side effects from deworming medication?


Rarely, most dewormers are very safe. The most common side effect would be vomiting, but again, that is very rare.
