Cat Worms

Internal worm control is important to ensure you own a healthy cat or kitten.

All cats can become infected with worms and pass them onto other animals including humans. Roundworm burden in cats can cause weight loss, diarrhoea, abdominal swelling and pain; severe roundworm infestations can cause anaemia and bowel obstruction.

Recommendations on the frequency of cat worming varies with the product type, but typically a three monthly dosage regime is recommended. Most cat worming products are broad spectrum and can target a variety of worms but this should be checked prior to use to ensure the chosen cat wormer will treat the required worms. The active ingredients of cat wormers vary and include Praziquantel, Pyrantel Embonate and Fenbendazole. Popular wormers include Drontal Cat Tablets and Drontal Cat XL Tablets, Droncit Spot On Solution, Panacur Paste, Granules and Small Animal Oral Suspension and Bob Martin Dewormer Spot On, Granules and Tablets.

Prescription only cat wormers are available from veterinary professionals with active ingredients including Imidacloprid & Moxidectin, Milbemycin Oxime, Lufenuron and Selamectin.

Worming products are available in different forms including tablets, paste, oral suspension, granules and spot on pipette. Cat wormers are either given orally, via the cat’s feed or on the back on the neck by a spot on pipette.

Worming dosages are usually based upon the weight and age of the cat. The breeding status of the cat must also be considered and the information supplied with the worming product should always be read prior to using the product.

All pets in the household should be wormed together to minimise the risk of re-infection. Kittens can be infected with roundworms via their mother’s milk and as such kittens should receive an appropriate worming product in line with the product information to combat any roundworm infection.

It is also recommended that a suitable flea treatment be administered for complete worm control. Fleas can act as the host to tapeworms exposing the cat to an increased risk of Dipylidium infection.

Before administering any cat worming product, please ensure you always read the pack information and any additional leaflet provided. If in doubt, consult a veterinary professional before using the product.
