Cats can be exposed to intestinal worms in a variety of ways such as adventuring outdoors, scavenging or hunting. Recent research has shown that the majority of cats in the UK should be wormed monthly, however there may be situations where less frequent treatment is required. Please speak to your vet or retailer about the most appropriate worming frequency for your cat.

Even if your cat never sets foot outside, they can still be at risk from worms. If your cat ingests a flea (which can carry worm eggs) when grooming, they can become infected with worms. It is also worth noting that if you have multiple pets in the household, there is also risk that they may bring home unwanted parasites.

There are suitable flea treatments which can be used in conjunction with Dronspot, please discuss appropriate use with your vet or retailer.

Even if your cat never sets foot outside, they can still be at risk from worms. If your cat ingests a flea (which can carry worm eggs) when they are grooming, they can become infected with worms. It is also worth noting that if you have multiple pets in the household there is also risk that they may bring home unwanted parasites.

Even though a low level of infection may not display any signs, as you can imagine, it’s not ideal to have parasitic worms living in your cat. It’s important to remember that worms can cause disease in people too, so regular worming of pets will give you a peace of mind that you are helping keep these unwanted visitors away from your family.

Dronspot kills every type of intestinal worm commonly found in UK cats, including:

  • Roundworms (Toxocara cati and Toxascaris leonina)
  • Tapeworms (Dipylidium caninum, Echinococcus multilocularis, and Taenia taeniaeformis)
  • Hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme)

As with all medicines, side effects are possible. Drooling and vomiting may occur in very rare cases. Mild and transient neurological signs such as wobbliness or tremor may occur in very rare cases - these effects are thought to occur as a result of the cat licking the area where the drops have been applied after treatment. In very rare cases where the drops have been applied hair loss or irritation may occur.

If you notice any adverse signs as mentioned above or other signs that concern you after using Dronspot, please speak to your vet.

Dronspot can be given to kittens weighing over 0.5kg and from 8 weeks of age.

Yes, some worms can also cause disease in people. Regular worming of our pets will help to reduce the chance of these parasites being accidentally ingested by people. 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.

Most of the time you can’t tell if your cat has worms as symptoms can be extremely difficult to spot, but that doesn't mean there aren’t still warning signs to look out for. These symptoms can include diarrhoea and vomiting, though these can be seen with many other conditions as well. You can also check your cat’s stool or vomit, as you might see spaghetti-like worms or rice-like segments around their bottom. Weight loss, lethargy and a bloated belly, are also a possibility, especially in kittens. If your cat shows any of the signs mentioned you should contact your vet for advice.

There are four main ways that your cat can become infected with intestinal worms:

  1. Picking worm eggs up from the environment (the soil/sandpits/grass etc.)
  2. From their mother - roundworms can be transmitted from mum to her kittens through suckling
  3. Eating an infected flea whilst grooming
  4. From hunting and eating infected mice, rabbits or birds

Unfortunately no. You can’t completely stop your cat coming into contact with worms. However, using Drontspot wormer regularly will help them combat every type of common intestinal worm found in UK cats.
