My friends cat threw up a long worm?
it was described as long and ribbed.Im a cat lover and was wondering what it was and how he get it, he never took it to a vet. he said the cat had stopped eating for a few days before, but it seem fine ever since, any info you can give me please?
There are products on the market which are suitable to medicate the cat - we used Johnson's kitten syrup, which is for both types of worm. It says on the bottle to put it surrounded by their food but my cats looked scornfully at a bowl of prawns when we tried that. If that doesnt work go to a pharmacy and get a syringe, and administer it that track. You will have to be quick, you will probably get covered within syrup, and the cat will sulk for the rest of the day, but it worked for my cats. If you are at all worried though please tell your friend to bring it to the vet straight away as they can provide more effective medicine and will check the cat while you are in attendance. We also administered some cat milk with the syringe as they hadnt eaten for so long.
Also please be careful and rinse out your hands obsessively because this can affect humans quite badly - surrounded by severe cases it can affect the nervous system.
Good luck and I hope the cat is ok.
In the meantime my cat has just pranced across the electric stove and have singed his paw - he is now limping and looking sorry for himself. The paw looks ok, but if anyone has any tips except going to get an aloe vera plant - it is 1.30am where I am - that would be awesome :-)
the cat has worms openly and they can be contracted by anything eating most likely... it stopped eating because the worm be growing bigger in its stomach. please tell your friend to get his cat to the vet to see whether the worm is still there...poor thing
. I would say that calling a vet and asking them roughly this is first and foremost.I hope the cat is o.k.
Finally, If your friend does not button this problem it can cause future health problems for the cat that can prove homicidal.
He might have worms. I highly propose immediately taking him to the vet.
unless its noodles :p
My cat did the same. I gave her Bob Martin de-wormer. she be ok after that :)
He needs to enjoy the cats poo checked for internal parasites
