My cat(s) have worms!!! ((can I throw the hurl smiley here??))
Well the bigger one, Max goes in tomorrow for his annual teeth cleaning, and I will just have him treated tomorrow.
He was on my bed tonight and I noticed what looked like "rice" near his backside on the blanket, and one was just emerging from that opening.....and they were slightly moving......ack!! ;0
Did a little research on the web and read that these are the egg cases of TAPEWORMS from fleas, (the "mother" worm is up in the cat's intestine, hooked on, feeding off the cat's blood supply).....and the kitten just had a good case of fleas, Max licks the kitten, and likely injested the fleas and their eggs and thus got worms (all this cycle of life according to the web)......so if Max is infested, so is the kitten.......(both cats are now flea-free now)
Gonna treat both cats.......
Can I just tell you all how dayum grossed out I am with this...??
I did a search on Petsmart's website and apparently there is a thing with THREE worm pills that used to be prescription but is now over the counter for $19.99 (I am buying stock in that company!!).....it's "Tape Worm Tabs" by Tradewinds......
I guess this is just a wake up call that if your pets have fleas (or had them) they are gonna have Tape Worms!!!
Post your worm stories here........;P
The lies you tell are less frightening than the loneliness you would feel if you stopped telling them.
