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.

Zoonotic Concerns:

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.
