Intestinal Parasites in Cats:
What are Intestinal Parasites?
Intestinal parasites are worms that live in the cat's intestines and can cause digestive issues like diarrhea, discomfort, and poor nutrition absorption.
Impact on Health:
Intestinal parasites can lead to various health issues, including gastrointestinal inflammation, weight loss, and nutritional deficiencies.
Prevention and Treatment:
We recommend monthly or annual deworming medications, depending on your cat's lifestyle. All kittens should receive a series of deworming medications. Diagnosis is typically done through a microscopic examination of a fresh fecal sample, which can identify the type of parasites present.
Some intestinal parasites like roundworm and hookworm can be transmitted to humans. Therefore, adhering to a regular deworming schedule for your pets is crucial to protect your family's health.
