Adult Cat Deworming

 

As a responsible pet owner you dewormed Tiger at four weeks and made sure he was protected from those nasty parasites. But now that he’s an adult you need to take extra care. Since cats are natural hunters you should follow a regular deworming schedule as almost all cats will host some type of internal parasite like worms at some stage of their lives.

Your best friend might pick these parasites from:

  • Hunting (rats and mice carry parasites)
  • Poor sanitation (clean their litter box once a day)
  • Fleas (keep them under control!)
  • Other animals at home (deworm your dogs with Bob Martin Bob Martin Vetcare Easy-to-use Dewormers for Dogs).

It’s your job to keep your cat healthy and safe

For his and your family sake’s! It’s possible for humans and especially children to become infected from worms from cats and dogs. Remember to teach your children to always wash their hands after touching Felix.
