Cat Health Topics
Roundworms live in your cat's intestines and can be acquired by ingestion of eggs in feces or by eating infected small animals such as mice, rodents or snakes. Kittens can also acquire roundworm through their mother's milk. In kittens, roundworms can cause liver and lung disease and general debilitation. These large worms can fill the small intestine and interfere with the absorption of nutrients. Severe infections can be fatal due to impaction of large amounts of worms in the intestine.
Signs of roundworm disease include vomiting, diarrhea and stunted growth. If your cat has any of these symptoms, call your veterinarian immediately. Be sure to bring a stool sample for the veterinarian to examine.
INTERCEPTOR® (milbemycin oxime) Flavor Tabs® for cats are indicated for the removal of adult roundworms (Toxocara cati).
