Does my cat need worming?

Thursday, September 28, 2017

All cats are exposed to roundworm sometime in their lives. Queens pass the larvae to their kittens in the milk and cats who hunt - and let's face it all cats are hunters - ingest them in that delicious worm, snail or mouse.
Tapeworm is also found in hunters and also in cats who are fed raw meat.
The flea tapeworm is the most common worm in Australian cats. Cats ingest tapeworm infected fleas during grooming.
At Canberra Cat Vet we recommend deworming of all cats, even if confined indoors, every 3 months and effective flea control if fleas have been found on your cat or in its environment.
Profender is an easy to apply spot-on worm control. If your cat also has fleas then Revolution or Advocate treat both fleas and worms.
Milbemax is a very small worm tablet that many people find easy to administer.
Canberra Cat Vet carries Activyl and Advantage, both excellent flea control spot-ons. We also have Seresto, a new flea control collar that keeps flea numbers down for 8 months.
