  • cat has tapeworm and losing hair

    help my cat has tapeworms and is losing her hair on her back down her spine what do i need to do.

    My first bit of advice would be for you to take the cat to the vet- the losing hair part doesn't sound normal. There are also some over the counter tapeworm medications, like this one: http://www.petsmart.com/global/produ...=1119969338805.

    Good luck!

      I agree with indyselsa....if you do not get medical help your cat will probably die!!!!!!

        A trip to you vet...

        Heather -

        You need to do a couple things. 1. Take your cat to the vet and get him dewormed and get a flea treatment like advantage for him. Your cat will continue to reinfest himself with the tapeworms as long as he has fleas. 2. The hairloss is most likely not from the tapeworms. It's something else, maybe ringworm by chance or some skin problem. Whatever the case you need to take him to the vet.

        Good luck.

          I definetly agree. He must have a trip to the vet. There is no other way to get rid of his problems without proper medical care. Please keep us posted on his treatment.

              That's a serious concern heather_rowi. The vet would probably give her deworming pills. Did you notice your cat's loss of appetite as well?
