Worming is of great importance: to keep your cat, yourself and your family, healthy, it is important to deworm your cat regularly. Worms can make your cat and especially your kitten seriously ill, you don't want this to happen. Depending on the kind of worm, worms make a tour through the animals body and can damage organs such as the lungs, liver andintestines, possibly leading to obstruction, diarrhea or vomiting. Worms also have an adverse effect of the animals resistance, will cause inflammation and lower the effect of a vaccination. Of course you want to protect your cat against all kind of parasitic infections, but keeping your animals free of worms is also better for the health of all the other members of the household.
It is wise to deworm all adult cat up to 4 times a year depending on the risk of infection.
