Cat Deworming

Parasitic worms, such as tapeworms and roundworms, can live and reproduce in the gastrointestinal tract of felines. Outdoor cats, particularly those that hunt, are especially at risk for contracting worms. These worms are not only harmful to your cat but can also be zoonotic- meaning they can be transferred to humans. If your cat is at risk of having worms, it is important to have your cat regularly dewormed. Regular doses of dewormer, given every 3 months, can be an effective way of controlling the worm parasite load in your cat and prevent them from spreading. At the Airdrie Animal Health Centre, we offer deworming products that fit the needs of your feline friend and offer the protection they need.

If my cat has worms, what symptoms should I look for?

A variety of symptoms can present from parasitic worms. One of the most indicative signs is the presentation of worms in your cat’s stool. If there is a large parasite build up in your cat’s gastrointestinal tract, bloating in the belly or the development of dull-haired coats can occur. If your feline is displaying symptoms of having worms, talk to our veterinary staff about treatment options.

Dear valued clients,

Given the current state of the pandemic in Alberta, we have made the decision to return to a closed-door protocol in an effort to do our best to help control the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of you and all our staff is our top priority so that we can continue to offer your pets the care they deserve. We ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate these challenging times together.

When you arrive for your appointment, please give us a call from your vehicle. We will ask a few questions before we start the appointment and ensure we have all of your information. We will then meet you and your pet at the door. For all appointments, we ask that you wait in your vehicle in the parking lot while your pet is being examined. The doctor will give you a call once your pet is in the clinic so we ask that you have your cell phone on at all times so there are no delays.

If you are picking up food or medication, give us a call and we will put your order in the bins outside the front Dog Entrance. Please note that you can purchase your food through our online store. Just head over to our website https://www.airdrievets.com/ and choose the online store tab at the top.

Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us all stay healthy. Please be considerate of our staff. We ask only for courtesy and kindness when working with our team as they continue to work tirelessly to provide the best level of care for your pet during these trying times.

Thank you for your continued trust in us.
