The importance of worming your cat

The most common type of worms that your cat may become infected with are roundworm and tapeworm.  A majority of the time your cat will show no signs that they are infected therefore prevention is far better than cure.

It is recommended that kittens up to the age of six months should be treated every month, after this the treatment schedule should be every 1-3 months.  This varies depending on how much time the cat spends outside and how likely they are to hunt and come into contact with worms, which can be found in other small animals such as mice.

Did you know that fleas can also carry worms . We recommend that you flea your cat along with worming as a dual treatment because if the cat ingests any fleas that are infected with tapeworm they can become infected themselves.

Cat wormers are available in tablet, granule and paste formulations so that you can choose which would be the most suitable for you and your pet. We stock a complete range for even the fussiest of cats. Click to see our complete range of wormers and flea and tick solutions.
