My cat is puking up white worms ?
Well I've taken my cat to the vet so much I just don't think I can do it any more. First off they be treated for parasites once all ready. I get their first fecal test and it tested positive for parasites. At that time I was given the prescription to help with the parasites. Due to the charges I granted to go to a different vet. I never got the second question paper done. I also didn't want to be recharged for another fecal test. I noticed he had worms a wile ago and bought Pro-pet Round worm de-wormer. Obviously that didn't work. So should I really step back to the vet? Should I just try this Pro-pet again.. Does anyone have any other suggestions. These worms be not flat they were round white but translucent and about an inch long to about and inch and a partly. Are they worms or parasites?
Just stop feed Kitty white worms, she clearly does not like them and i doubt worms are a good nutritional substitute for cat food
If you take the worm to the vet, they will know how to give you the correct wormer for him. As long as both cats have be seen by the vet recently, and the vet has the shipment on both, they will probably just give you the worming meds for both of them without an bureau visit. If you are good about taking your cats surrounded by, they don't necessarily have to see them for something as "obvious" as a case of worms.
And you'll need to verbs the litter box - dump the litter, wash it with bleach, and then compress with clean litter. This will get rid of any worms or eggs hiding within there waiting to re-infest them.
You might also want to call the shelter you originally got them from. Many of them hold vets or vet techs available for simple things like worming, flea treatment, and vaccines. Not where I'd cart an ill cat - but perfectly adequate for something approaching this. It may be a way for you to get them properly treated, and save money.
There are at least 5 types of worms a cat can get. You stipulation to give the medicine SPECIFIC for the type the cat has, simply dosing with anything from the store isn't going to guarantee that it's getting the type your cat has, which is why a vet needs to do a fecal.
Since your cat can become re-infested whether it eats prey, swallows a flea with tapeworm larvae contained by it, or by using a litter box that another cat with worms may have used, you may be dealing with a unusual infestation instead of the old one.
Take a sample in, of the worms (use a closure lock baggie) and the feces. The test isn't that expensive and you're guaranteed to be treating for the right parasite.
poor cat. yes i judge its best to go see a vet
get him to the vet beside a fecal sample and get this taken care of. over the counter meds for pets now and then really work and you are putting your cat's life at risk using those since a lot of those can cause injure to your cats.
These are roundworms and you need to get some pills from a vet to obtain rid of them.You don't need to take your cat, just enjoy an idea how much he weighs. You will probably be given a tablet for straight away and another for a fortnight next. Then you should worm your cat every 3 months with tablets from the vet, to keep him worm free.
Don't waste your money buying them at a pet shop or on flash as they don't work !
Hudson pegged the answer to your question. I just considered necessary to add that worms ARE parasites. They're one and the same.
