Cat worms

My babys are infected.
We found they have mites, and during the proccess of desparasitation we found they have bloody long disgusting worms!!!! Arggggggggggggg
How such a disgusting thing can life inside the most cute thing ever????

Whatever. The warms are dying that is why they are going out. I guess the babys are going to be fine in a couple of days. Any feedback from your own experience about this topic is welcome.

But my main point here is...How we should clean our flat???

We are kind of worry that the worms can come to us. I know that this worms leave eggs everywherelse, sofa, carpet, chairs, the cats beds....
In order to get rid of the eggs, how should we clean?

Thanks

First off, if you're seeing flat white worm segments it does not mean they're dying. quite the opposite. If not then what sort of worms are they? Either way you need to get treatment.

Secondly, if they've got ear mites (I presume from your description) they may well have fleas or even ticks as well. Products are available to spray all your furnishings which will kill any such, and persist long enough to kill any hatching eggs too.

The worms aren't actually a problem in this respect - any excreted segments will dry out quite quickly indoors so unless you let your cats get on top of food you're about to eat you should be fine.

But really, as it's difficult to be sure without more detail, I suggest you get thee down to the vets for more accurate advice.

Re: Cat worms

When we adopted our puppy we dewormed her,, and discovered she was full of worm. It's the most disgusting thing I've ever seen in my life...

1 hour after taking the pill, she threw up a half-dead worm. She then pooed 'spaghetti' for 36 hours. Those long white worms are called 'ascarisses' in French, and are very common in baby cats and dogs. Actually, they get infected in utero by their mothers.

They are contagious for humans, especially kids. We went to the pharmacy and they gave us special pills to take twice a day for three days to get rid of it (just as a precaution, we weren't sure we were infected).

Re: Cat worms

We went to the vet three times this week. I run to her any time I am scare. And I scare easily.
She told us the roundworms are dying because of the desparasitation product she put on them.
When you said "Either way you need to get treatment" you mean the cats or me??? The cats are being treated but not me
These products you said to spray in the furniture...Can you tell me an example? Something that is not toxic for me or the cats please.

Thanksss

Re: Cat worms

No, sorry. But I explained the situation to the pharmacist and she gave us something appropriate. Some sort of large specter deworming pill.

Boy are you overreacting.

You take medicine for the very unlike event that you got cat worms?


Consider however that after cleaning your house make sure to continue on the streets of your town, all the forests, hills and mountains,

as everytime a person steps in your steril flat with his shoes on (even on socks if he had put his feet only once where normally people walk with their shoes) he might have stepped in a dog doo some time ago with still invisible worm eggs on them ...


Cheers

Re: Cat worms

OP, eating garlic (you, not the cats) is also a good idea if you don't want to catch the worms.

Good luck!

Who cares if they look disgusting (ever seen a small little cute insect on the microscope?).

My message from above is: Care more for cat's and your own health, but do not panic and don't fall in general hysteria. Fox and pigs' worms are dangerous, and regarding cats it's more the smaller ones, not the big segmented ones.

Clean your flat, but keep out the chemical stuff, as it does more harm for you and your cat than any good.


P.S. You know how allergies have been starting to spread in modern society?

Re: Cat worms

In Hungary we HAVE TO give the deworming pills to the cats and dogs quarterly, as they live outside.
Inside souls should get it yearly.

Puppies and kittens are more exposed to worms (they suck! ) and it is the normal routine to give them these pills (not pills, it is some paste) every second week or so.
The eggs are everywhere, especially on their fur - that is why a good handwash is required after touching a furry animal and that is why they should not be kissed.

So it is just a routine that comes along with the periodic vaccination - the only difference is that we don't have to take them to the vet, we get the pills and give them to them every three month.

I did not know that humans need to take pills as well.

Nothing is wrong with the OP's hygiene, unfortunately worms are normal at animals.
It is a very good topic, thanks for bringing it up!

Re: Cat worms

Vet gave me appointment in 2 weeks, which is 3 weeks after desparasitation.
But I read in internet that they should be treat after 2 weeks.
Should I wait or do I gave some "worms-Killer" to them?

I would wait until you see the vet again. Worm killer is not a very nice thing and you could end up doing more harm than good if you give them another dose.
