Roundworms in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Treatment for roundworms is completed on an outpatient basis using specific drugs that kill roundworms and roundworm larvae. In severe cases, surgery may be performed to remove more of the roundworm matter.

 

Living and Management

 

It will be important to take your cat back to the veterinarian for a repeat fecal examination to ensure that all of the roundworms, including the larvae, were eliminated from its body.

 

Prevention

 

There are no known preventative measures for roundworms.
