Your cat might have worms without you even knowing about it. The two main types of intestinal worm affecting UK cats are roundworm and tapeworm and symptoms aren’t always easy to spot. Intestinal worms can easily be picked up by your cat e.g. from eating microscopic worm eggs from the environment, from hunting or from swallowing infected fleas when grooming. Kittens can even pick roundworms up from their mum when they suckle her milk.
Drontal cat worming tablets work fast to fight intestinal worms. Available in two different strengths of tablet, Drontal cat tablets kill every type of intestinal worm commonly found in UK cats.
Highly effective against all types of intestinal worm commonly found in UK cats, Drontal Cat and Drontal Cat XL tablets can be given with or without food and work quickly to combat worms in your cat.
We can also become infected with an intermediate stage of some species of tapeworm if we swallow tapeworm eggs. It’s even possible (though uncommon) for people to develop a tapeworm infection if they swallow an infected flea.
1) Eating worm eggs from the environment (the soil/sandpits/grass etc.)
2) From her mother: roundworms can be transmitted from Mum to her kittens while they suckle her milk.
3) From eating other infected animals. Rodents, rabbits, birds and even insects (such as fleas) can become infected with the larval stages of intestinal worms, and if our pets eat these (e.g. from hunting, or swallowing infected fleas when grooming), they can develop intestinal worms.
