Cats and Tapeworm

It looks like my cat might have tapeworm. There are dried sesame like things where she sits, i have googled it and it look like she has tapeworms. I won't be able to take her to the vets untill after the weekend. Anyone had cats with this? What will the vets do? What are the symptoms?

our vets usually just give our cat a worming tablet when we take him, they should be done regulary

Thanks Souljacker. How does your cat eat it, does the vet disguise it in a treat? Do you know the name of the tablet?

Think that you can buy worming tablets from pet shops and supermarkets can't u?? Might be an idea if u can't get to the vets till next week. Sorry, I don't know any names and I could be thinking of the wrong thing but probably worth a ring to ur local Tesco or whatever. :)

Drontal tablets are the best, but mine from here ( though think pets at home do them too ) saves a vet fee

Looking at that atm. It does save vet fees, esp since im pretty sure what's wrong with her, how do you get your cat to take the tablets? do you mix it with her food?

If you are sure its tapeworms then try http://www.petmeds.co.uk and buy the Droncit Spot-on 20mg solution TUBES. These are easier than tablets if your cat is difficult, just put a tube on the back of head. (cats head not yours )

Tbh, the stuff from supermarkets are not the best, I used to breed pedigree cats and always used drontal for them, you can buy a pill popper from pet shops for about £1.25, it's like a syringe with a gripper at one end, pop the pill into that, with one hand stroke top of cats head pulling it back iykwim, then with the other pop the popper into its mouth and depress plunger, putting it into their food doesn't ensure that they will eat it, have used the pill popper many times over the years, a vet recommended it to me, and it's alot easier than it sounds

good idea will buy this at the same time as the tablet, think your right about the supermarket stuff, i bought flea treatment from there which was a waste of time
