Don’t Let Them Get Their Hooks Into Your Cat
Hookworms are just plain nasty. They attach to the lining of a cat’s intestinal wall, feed on a cat’s blood and pass eggs in a cat’s feces.
Why Should I Care About Hookworms?
- Hookworms can cause anemia, weight loss and diarrhea in infected cats.
- Coughing may occur if they enter and damage the lungs.
- Heavy infestations can be fatal, especially in kittens.
Is My Indoor Cat at Risk?
Cats can become infected by eating hookworm larvae (in other words, "baby hookworms") through infected prey like rodents. Your cat can also contract hookworms by eating cockroaches that contain infected larvae.10 They can even be found in your cat’s own litter box if it’s not properly cleaned every day.Control hookworms with REVOLUTION »
