Indoor cats are not at risk of infection from parasites. Right? Wrong.
If one of the reasons you keep your cats indoors is to keep them free of tapeworms and roundworms, you might want to think again.
These feline parasites can be lurking inside the home carried in by fleas and rodents.
Because cats are such fastidious groomers they can have a flea infestation going on without you being aware of the problem – and the ensuing problem of tapeworms. Likewise, even in a meticulously clean household a mouse can find the smallest of holes to enter only to find your keen hunter ready to pounce on the roundworm-carrying host.
Prevention is simple.
Call us for an annual examination regardless if your cat lives in or out – or both, and routinely have your cat’s feces examined.
