Feline Nematode or Intestinal Worms

Nematodes, of approximately a finger of length, can be found in feces with a little bit of attention; or without it, just be certain that it has worms. How is it possible, if vermicides are proven to be so effective? They are, but the larva from the eelworm, which moves around the body or finds a place to rest in tissues, don’t result affected by such products, and once finished the cure, they start generating descent. 

Breast feeding cats are contagious by their mother’s milk. The above-mentioned contagion cannot be avoided, but it can be relieved. Kittens should have their first cure between the tenth and fourteenth day of life. This must be repeated every week until approximately the twelfth week of life. Starting the twelfth week, cats that are bred alone or with a lot of cleanliness have to submit to a cure every three months. If they have any contact with any feces from an infected cat, you must check it out more often. 

For this kind of cure, specific, but cheat medicine are enough. Other parasites lack importance in this phase of life. Administering any preparation, which almost always comes in paste, is not a problem. Cat owners have developed skilled methods according to diverse characters. Whoever has an energetic character, it can be administered with a plastic syringe (without needle), and putting it in it’s mouth. People that are more capable extend the paste over the front feet of the animal and watch how it licks it off. The best thing to do is to mix it with some of their favorite food. You have to make sure it eats everything simultaneously. Bred cats can have parasites removed at two, four, six, eight and ten weeks after birth. This way although not avoided, it diminishes transmission of nematode larvas to the kittens. In case of cats that have been received at a house, before any preventive vaccination or any other sanitary measurements, it is necessary to put in practice some treatment against eelworms. The reason is obvious: any cat with worms will react badly to any good action thought in his favor. Possibilities, which we will find, are two. On one side, through dreg analysis, it can be determined what kind of worm it has. In case it is only an infestation of eelworms, an anti parasite will be enough; any that can be bought in any drug store. On the other hand, you can also apply through any means destined to almost all kinds of intestinal parasites. Denominated wide spectrum vermicides. They turn out be a little more expensive than a specific preparations against worms, but they are equally inoffensive and of high efficiency. Veterinarians usually have in stock, but in any case, will give you a recipe.


Important: once verified of a nematode infestation, proceed to treat it in two occasions with an interval from two to three weeks. It is necessary to do it this way due to the insidious character of larvas, which are protected by tissues and give place to a new generation of intestinal worms. Overall, it’s about a wide spectrum vermicide and second it’s a specific product against nematodes.
