Helminthiasis is one of the most common problems in domestic animals. Worms are periodically found in 80% of cats, regardless of their diet and access to the outdoors. Ring worms in cats treatment involves antifungal medications and proper hygiene practices to manage and eliminate the fungal infection. Certainly, outdoor roaming and a raw meat diet or fish consumption increase the risk of parasites in cats. However, helminthiasis can develop in an ordinary indoor pet that never goes outside and exclusively eats dry food. Worm treatment for cats is essential to maintaining their health and preventing severe complications. Cat parasite treatment is necessary to eliminate these infections and prevent them from spreading. Additionally, kitten parasite treatment is particularly important, as young cats are more susceptible to these parasites and can suffer from severe symptoms if left untreated.

Symptoms of worms in cats

The symptoms of worm infestations depend on the type of parasites, their location, and the severity of the disease. Usually, at the early stage of the disease, worms do not bother the pet, but over time, they can cause:

  • Poor appetite, pain in the stomach, digestive tract disturbances, vomiting, and constipation
  • Coughing fits (a common sign of ascarid infestation)
  • Pathological enlargement of the liver, jaundice
  • Anemia, which is often observed in kittens.
  • Changes in the quality of fur, losing its shine and forming mats.
  • Discomfort in the anal area, manifested by frequent licking.
  • Rash and hair loss in the anal area
  • Abdominal swelling.

The appearance of any of these symptoms requires seeking medical attention. Lack of treatment for helminthiasis can lead to paralysis and even the death of the animal.
