Cats are always being exposed to intestinal worms, even prior to birth. Cats are exposed to worms in different ways. Some species of worms can transfer to kittens through the placenta or from their mother?s milk, while some species are transferred via the soil in parks and backyards, or transferred from fleas or lizards. Kittens under 6 months of age need to be wormed more frequently than adults as their immune system is more vulnerable and they are particularly susceptible to infestation. Unwormed kittens are at risk of developing gastrointestinal problems like diarrhoea and vomiting, poor growth, anaemia and even death. To ensure this doesn?t occur, kittens should be wormed every 2 weeks from 2 to 8 weeks of age, then monthly until they are at least 6 months old. Adult cats require treatment for worms at least every 3 months.
