Has had the great fortune to take care of a cat that is claimed to be so troublesome and not room clean – and therefore had to stay outdoors (!) All winter and a little more, despite this it is room clean, but unneutered, once it has come here, but it has spit up worm and I have dewormed first as a routine with axilur and a month later with drontal, ie this time.
How do you know that this is a new worm or can it have so much worm that a cure was not enough?
One of the worms in the feces (dead) was I guess up to half a meter (ball) and then there were also smaller worms the worms it vomited up were alive and one – three cm and about three – five pieces.
The cat is alert, happy, fearless, social, playful and for understandable reasons terribly thirsty for attention and tenderness – room clean if you exclude leather and fur – and I think it is quite “logical” to mark “foreign animals” – so these notes are passed to wind and uff.
How fast do new worms develop if there are leftovers and can you trust commercial fish? It helps to freeze. We have been and vaccinated.
And I helped with a lot of cats at a veterinary clinic but that was at least twenty years ago, so I’ve forgotten most of it.
But I’m a fan of giving medicine – and the cat did not seem to find this particularly troublesome – so I do not think he spat out tablets.
Never before dewormed or anything at all – stupid people who should not have a cat.
How lucky we are that there are people like you in this world and I am fully convinced that the cat will be happy that he has got such a nice master to be a cat for.
Sometimes several deworms may be required if the cat has a lot of worms – which seems to be the case with your cat.
Dewormers with the substance “fenbedazole” or “praziqvantel” are the substances that most effectively remove worms.
Check at your local pharmacy which of the remedies contains this, or contact your veterinarian, and ask if he / she can prescribe stronger remedies for the cat, as it really seems to have a lot of worms.
Worms usually have a life cycle of between 30 days up to eight – nine weeks, so as I said, it can take time to get rid of the problems.
It goes well with commercial fish if the cat likes it, but then, as I said, you can deworm a little more often every year.
Boiled cod is something that my mother’s cats are crazy about, mine, on the other hand, hardly likes fish in any form…
Hope now that you are well, and I send a big compliment to you, who is a true cat lover of the highest rank.
