    • Yes, cat tapeworms can cause disease in people and it is one of the reasons why regularly worming our pets is so important.

      People who are particularly at risk include pregnant women, babies, toddlers and immunocompromised individuals such as the elderly, diabetics and people with HIV-infection.†

      People can also become infected with an intermediate stage of some species of tapeworm if they swallow tapeworm eggs. It’s even possible (though uncommon) for people to develop a tapeworm infection if they swallow an infected flea.

    • Fleas can be infected with the larval stage (active immature form) of the flea tapeworm. If your cat or dog swallows an infected flea, they can end up with a tapeworm infection.

    • The problem is that often, you can’t. In many cases you simply won't know if there are worms hidden inside your cat's gut as symptoms can be difficult to spot.

      There are a few symptoms you can try to look out for, such as vomiting, diarrhoea, a dull lifeless coat, loss of appetite and lack of energy. If you notice any of these signs in your pet you should consult your vet for advice.
