Sometimes, there will be no symptoms if a cat has an infestation of parasites. However, they could present with a bloated abdomen, dull/thin hair coat, or a good appetite with weight loss.

Do worms affect humans?

Most of the intestinal parasites that affect cats are zoonotic, which means humans can contract them.

What is the deworming schedule?

When a kitten comes in, they are dewormed every 2 weeks, until about 16 weeks of age. An adult cat that goes outside, should be on a monthly dewormer.
