Aside from being uncomfortable and irritating, worms can cause vomiting, diarrhoea, anaemia, weight loss and a general
lack of condition. In more extreme cases, worms can have serious effects on a cat’s health including a prolapse,
where the rectum slips out of place. This must be treated immediately, or it can be fatal.
Worms can damage the gut, stunt growth, cause diarrhoea, dehydration, anaemia and put them off their food, leading
to severe weight loss and a general lack of condition. They can also make your dog more susceptible to other
diseases. In extreme cases, worms can even be fatal.
Nursing Mothers, Kittens & Puppies
Nursing mothers, young kittens and puppies should be wormed more often than adult cats and dogs (initially every
2 weeks), until a strong immune response has been developed.
