Hearing that your cat has tape worms can be a serious cause of concern. People panic at this stage and many wonder if their cat is going to make it out of the situation alive. Well for all of those worried about their cat getting or having tape worm, you do not have much to fear at all. Tape worms are actually the most common parasite that attacks adult cats and there are very easy ways of tackling their presence in a cat and helping prevent your cat from getting them in the first place.
So starting with prevention, you first need to know how cats are infected with tape worms. The tape worm parasite does not directly aim for a final host body but first they attach themselves to a flea or to a louse. Once the flea or louse has been infected, the parasite just waits for the host to go to a cat’s body and be ingested in the process of grooming. This is how cats are infected with the tapeworm parasite. At this point it is really clear that you need to make sure that your cat is flea or lice proof and not in danger of getting a tapeworm.
You can always tell that your cat might have tape worms because it might be consistently biting or scratching itself close to its anus or hind legs and there might even be rice like segments near its anus. Your cats fur might appear less silky or shiny and if the size of the tapeworm increases the cat might lose weight too. SO if these things start happening then you will want to fix the problem. To begin dealing with tapeworms in cats you need to get tapeworm pills that you can add in your cats food.
We have all heard of stories of therapy animals for people that are aging, dealing with mental illnesses etc. and it is really heartwarming to see them be able to support their owners in their own way. However, it is equally important that we return the favor in our own way as well. If you ever go to a shelter, you’ll notice that animals that are old, disabled or special needs are the usually the ones that aren’t adopted because they are simply “too much work.” The future for these unfortunate souls is sad, with most of them being putdown long even if they are well. So, if you are debating getting a pet, please consider getting a special needs pet.
First of all, yes, these animals require a lot more work and patience. You will have to pay more visits to your local veterinarian in Atlanta, so you will have to spend more money on them than an otherwise normal pet. You will also have to be patient with them because they won’t be able to do all the things that other pets are capable of doing. It is also emotionally draining to an extent because with older pets, you know they won’t have as much time left here, so you will have to say goodbye earlier, but it is really worth it.
These animals that would have been ignored, neglected or putdown would have spent the rest of their time being miserable. So, when you take them in and give them love, they will do their best to give it back because you will be changing their lives for the better, so whatever amount of time these animals may have left, they will have spent it basking in love and having fun, all because of you
