Questions about Cats Worms

  • How can I tell if my cat has worms?

  • It can be difficult to tell if your cat has worms as often there are no outward signs. But, there are some symptoms of worms you can be on the lookout for.
  • In young kittens, a worm infestation can be more obvious. Roundworms may cause abdominal swelling and pain, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhoea, and on rare occasions, rupture of the bowel. A young kitten that is thin with a ‘pot-belly’ is often described as a typically ‘wormy’ kitten.
  • In adult cats, symptoms of worms are rarely seen, except for an occasional adult worm in faeces or vomit. Even if your cat is showing no symptoms of worms, don't assume they are worm-free and don’t be tempted to skip a treatment.
  • We recommend using Beaphar WORMclear® Tablets for Cats, a vet strength wormer which is available in pet shops and online. It is suitable for cats from 6 weeks of age and weighing more than 1kg. If you have trouble giving your cat tablets, you could use Beaphar WORMclear® Spot-On for Cats which kills tapeworms, and then use Beaphar Worming Granules, which kill roundworms.
