We have no complaints about worms - infact, we didnt even know we had to worm the cat regularly. But when we took our 5 month old kitten to the vet she recommended regular worming as a general practice. Even though I have never seen worms in his stools when cleaning out the litter tray - I still gave the worm treatment recommended by the vet.
We gave Profender worming treatment to give to our indoor cat about 2 days ago (this is a topical treatment on the back of his neck). Just then I cleaned up the litter tray and saw a big long skinny worm in one of the stools.
1. Is it common after worming to see worms in stools - even if you have never seen them there before?
2. I read that humans can get worms too from animals - should we also take some anti worm treatment?
I suspect it is killing the worms and he is passing it now. I was kinda freaked out, so i cant remember if it was moving - i don't think it was though!
