Roundworms in Cats



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.




There are no known preventative measures for roundworms.
