    Why does he keep getting worms?!

    It's so disgusting! Ron has worms again! He just had them a month or two ago! What are we doing wrong?!


    Thank you Wolfie!

    Is there a possiblity of a flea problem? That's where worms will start from is flea droppings. We went through this a few years back and had to medicate for fleas and worms. It took several months to clear it all up.
    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers

    I was using Frontline and mine kept getting them so the vet changed them to Advantage and have't had a problem since. You may need to change the flea treatemnt like I did.

    What kind of worms?

    Our Vet explained that you may think you have treated round worms, but they may reappear. Some part of the cycle burrows into the body, and will then come out again even months later. Sort of like the Herpes virus that causes Chicken Pox. Years later it can reappear as shingles.

    We use Revolution for the boys, because it can control round worms.

    If it is tape worms, cats can get them from fleas and inappropriate eating habits.

    They're inside, and we don't have a flea problem because we use frontline. I'd forgotten until now, but the last time we talked about this, I said that I was going to switch to Revolution when my Frontline runs out. I buy it in bulk for all the animals, I probably have a year left. Maybe I'll give the Frontline away and just get the Revolution. I can't stand worms.


    Thank you Wolfie!
