KEEP YOUR CAT A SAFE HOUSEMATE – FOR YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR ENVIRONMENT

REGULAR DEWORMING ENSURES THAT THE RISK OF ROUNDWORM IN THE CAT’S FAECES IS EFFECTIVELY REDUCED

When a worming treatment is given, it removes worms already present in the digestive tract, but it will not prevent re-infestation.

After ingestion of infective eggs from the environment it takes little over 4 weeks for a roundworm (Toxocara spp.) to mature and produce eggs, which will then be shed in your cat’s poo.

Be aware, roundworm eggs are resistant – they can stay dormant in the environment for years, still alive and able to infest a host when ingested. For this reason, it is important that we prevent the shedding of roundworm eggs in the environment.

RECOMMENDATION FROM THE EXPERTS

  • Cats should be dewormed at least every 3 months1
  • For cats living in households with young children or anyone with a poor immune system monthly deworming is recommended1
