feline intestinal flukes and how can they be dewormed?
Intestinal flukes are
parasitic worms that live in a cat’s or dog’s
intestinal tract. They are sometimes called threadworms. The
feline intestinal flukes that are most likely to cause a problem
in cats are called cat threadworms. These threadworms are
believed to be introduced into the cat’s body through
defecation of dogs, cats, or birds that carry the worm. They can
also be brought in through contact with another cat that has
feline whipworms and how can they be dewormed?
Feline whipworms are a
type of parasitic worm that live in the small intestine of cats.
In the early 1990s, it was discovered that large numbers of cats
in the United States were being infected with whipworms that had
been moved into the country in food and flea treatment given to
cats. To prevent these infections, cat owners have been advised
to deworm their cats, which means giving the cat a
praziquantel, a deworming medicine. The cat will get its
deworming medicine in its food, which is specially prepared for
them. Deworming medications will be specially packaged and
labeled to ensure that it will not enter the human food supply.
can I help reduce the chance of worms in the
The best way to protect
your cat agnst worms and parasites is to keep it from getting
infected in the first place. This includes:
checkups at the veterinarian to ensure that it is receiving
medication for tapeworms, and not simply getting worms from the
feces outdoors rather than in the house to reduce the risk of
bringing parasites into the house.
your cat does become infected with worms, it should be dewormed,
and the household should be treated for fleas.
the household free of parasites will prevent your pet from
passing parasites on to you or your neighbors. Be sure to
check the environment around the house. You will also want to
be aware of the possibility of the pet cat getting fleas from
surrounding areas, and if they do get fleas from the environment
around the house, make sure that they are treated. It is best
to have the cat examined by the vet for any possible worms.
can I prevent my children from getting worms?
The same precautions
that parents take to prevent their children from getting worms
or parasites should be taken to protect children in the home.
Parasites can be picked up from a variety of different
surroundings, and one of the best ways to prevent your children
from getting parasites is to not allow them to eat food that is
not prepared for them. For example, raw vegetables or salad
should not be allowed to be on the table for children. It
should be noted that if a child does swallow a worm, it is more
likely to develop a large and pnful swelling in the throat.
This may require emergency surgery, but more likely it will be
managed by the pediatrician.
Can I treat my own worms?
If a person has
worm infestation and is using traditional over-the-counter
medications such as deworming medications, then these will not
treat worms. It is important to take your own advice and get a
vet to prescribe you medications that are prescribed for pets.
These medications will need to be applied on a regular basis,
or the worms will die, and then it is up to you to kill them
yourself. Over-the-counter remedies can only be used to clear
the worms. If a person does not have the money to get a
regular vet, then a good place to start would be with the
University of Tennessee, Knoxville. There is a free worm clinic
that is held there each year that anyone can attend. To
register for this clinic, you can call the UT worm clinic
between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM at
