Don’t Give Roundworms the Time of Day
Roundworms are the most common internal parasite found in cats.7 They make themselves at home in the small intestine, then both adults and eggs are passed in a cat’s feces. These worms can cause serious health issues in cats — especially kittens — and even people. That’s why it’s important to keep your cat protected.
Why Should I Care About Roundworms?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that pet owners take precautions against this serious human health threat.8 These precautions include a regular preventative against roundworms and other feline intestinal parasites.
Is My Indoor Cat at Risk?
Roundworms can find their way indoors — and into your cat — through contaminated commercial soil in potted plants, from eating prey like rodents or bugs, or even from the dirt on your shoes.9 Plus, they are more than just gross — they can cause serious health problems. Infected prey can pass roundworms to your cat — so if your cat likes to hunt, that can cause problems. Once your cat is infected, roundworm eggs can get into the litter box and be a source of human infections.Control roundworms disease with REVOLUTION »
