Most of the felines do not show any symptoms of acquiring worms, but due to heavy worm infestation kitties can lose sudden weight, vomit and even lead to irritation around the anus along with diarrhea. The interesting thing is that outdoor kitties are more prone to acquiring intestinal worms as they hunt and eat rodents, that are usually exposed to the soil where other animals defecate. Even if your feline has fleas then also the chances of her acquiring tapeworms increase. It has been researched and found that roundworms and tapeworms are two of the most common intestinal worms that cats get.
It should be noted that kittens and cats that do not receive regular preventative treatments for worms are at the maximum risk of developing complications with internal parasites. But it is important that you do not treat your feline yourself as there are different types of deworming treatments available in the market that treat one or more than one intestinal worms and so it is recommended to inquire with your veterinarian before administering any deworming treatment to her.
