Treatment is readily available at supermarkets and pet stores within NSW. All products for sale must have proven efficacy.
Hunting cats have a higher incidence of worms, as they ingest rodents, cockroaches, worms, etc, which may have eaten cat faeces.
It is rare for a cat to become ill from parasites, but they can sometimes exhibit dull coats. A rapid response is seen to treatment with tablets or a paste.
Indoor cats which have no fleas (fleas are an intermediate host for a common tapeworm) should not have worms.
