Default If a cat has worms can the cat be healed?

There are many types of "worms" or intestinal parasites. In most cases, they can be treated although more severe infestations may take several rounds of medications. The most effective way to treat your cat is to determine what type of worms he or she has through a fecal sample or analysis of the worms and then to have your veterinarian prescribe a worming medication.

Default Cat has worms

Ringworm is a prevailing skin disease frequently diagnosed in cats and dogs. As the name suggests, the disease is not caused by any variety of worms, but is caused by a fungus known as Dermatophytes, whose source food are the available dead tissues over the skin surface of these animals. This later spreads over other parts of the skin, hence causing this disease. Since ringworms are an infectious disease. Always ensure that the cat is labeled. Keep the kids away from the pet till the time it gets properly cured. Use of gloves while handling your pet is highly recommended as the ringworms are infectious and you should take accurate preventive methods. Although it is a minor disease, it may lead to serious issues owing to its slow healing process and its infectious nature.

We had a siamese years ago with ringworm and he infected my hubby and myself. I was pregnant at the time and so it was very disturbing. We couldn't see anything on Mr. Sim but we developed round raised areas on our upper arms as he enjoyed curling up in our arms. I believe we had to use cream on ourselves which I wonder now if they would prescribe to a pregnant woman this day and age.

Smile cat worms symptoms

When it comes to cat symptoms of ringworm, this should be noted as infectious. If Kids live in the house, you should keep them away from your cat.

Also when you handle your cat, be sure use gloves. Cat symptoms of ringworms can be contagious, and use caution. It is better to be safe than sorry. Even it is a mild disease, cat ringworm can result in serious problems due because of slow recovery and fact that it is known to be contagious.

Smile Treatment of Cat Ring Worm

You should immediately schedule an appointment with your vet and if your local vet has a cat symptom diagnosis of ringworm, they may prescribe ointment or even a tablet.

As a side note, if your vet prescribes tablets to your cat, it is easier to give them with your cats food.

When it comes to ointment, I have found that it is normally spread into the coat. Make sure you use what your vet prescribes on a daily basis, to ensure that your cat heals.

The healing process will take time, normally around six weeks or more.

Hope this helps...

You cannot give your cat the medicine you consider correct, only if you're a vet.

For best medicine consult your vet...In that way there is a very small possibility that you might give a wrong medicine to your cat...
