Cat Worms

By Ernest Ward, DVM

What are the different cat parasites or cat worms?MyPetED image: Several types of cat parasites (worms) cause medical problems in cats, to various degrees. These include roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, and heartworms.

Several types of internal parasites cause medical problems in cats, to various degrees. These include:

  • Roundworms (Nematodes), mainly Toxocara canis (intestinal roundworm)
  • Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis)
  • Tapeworm (Cestodes), including Dipylidium caninum, Taenia species and Echinococcus species
  • Hookworm (Ancylostoma)

Are cat parasites serious?

Intestinal parasites can range from “minor and treatable” to severely dangerous. For example, 

  • Intestinal worms can be very serious in young kittens.
  • Hookworms cause anemia and roundworms, and lead to poor growth and development.
  • Heartworm disease is considered to be one of the most serious conditions seen in small animal practice, and can be life-threatening.

What happens to cats and kittens that get internal parasites?

All of these parasites cause symptoms and medical problems ranging from unpleasant to life-threatening.

Roundworms: A large number of roundworms can stunt a kitten's growth, cause serious digestive upsets and result in excessive gas formation. These kittens have a characteristic 'pot bellied' appearance. Roundworms do not require an intermediate host to spread from cat to cat, but can be transmitted from cat to cat via infective eggs shed in the feces.

Hookworms: Hookworms can cause severe anemia, eczema and secondary bacterial infections as they borrow through the skin of a cat. Hookworms attaches to the small intestinal lining and feed on blood. infective larvae enter the cat by mouth or through the skin, particularly the feet.

Tapeworms: Cats get different kinds of tapeworms from an intermediate host, such as fleas or certain rodent species; not directly from another cat or a cat.

  • Dipylidium caninum (the most common tapeworm in cats) is spread through fleas. It causes few problems in adults but can cause digestive upsets and growth stunt in kittens.
  • Taenia speciesis carried by small animals, such as rodents or rabbits. These worms mainly infect adult cats and cause few problems. If they infect a kitten, a large number of worms can cause intestinal blockage.
  • Echinococcus: This worm is zoonotic, which means people can be infected. Sheep and sometimes people can act as the intermediate hosts. The worms develop inside cysts in various organs, such as the lungs or brain.

Heartworms: Heartworm infection is a growing prolem in cats ...
