What you may not yet know is that it’s perfectly normal for your cat and all cats to have a variety of organisms living within its gastrointestinal tract to aid in normal digestion and health, just as with humans. However, all of this healthy bacteria—and the rest of your cat’s immune system—will all be deeply impacted if your cat gets any of the wide variety of worms, most commonly, hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and most famously, tapeworm.
These are all very commonly found in the out-of-doors, where your cat may regularly wander unwittingly. Furthermore, if your cat gets fleas, she is also more likely to get tapeworms, because fleas are vectors for this type of parasite, and carry them onto, and then into, your unsuspecting kitty.
For this reason, flea and tick control is also extremely important for your cat, especially if you allow your cat(s) to roam around outside. But, if your cat has come down with any type of worms, don’t fret—there are a few different all-natural ways to get rid of them.
An apple cider bath
If your cat has fleas or worms, try giving him an apple cider bath. Both worms and fleas detest apple cider, and will quickly depart upon smelling it anywhere near them. An apple cider bath is easy to do if you have a relatively willing participant, and if you do it often enough, perhaps once a week or so, you can keep worms and fleas away from your cat.
Buy an at-home dewormer for cats and kittens online
If you cannot afford to go to the vet, or simply don’t want to incur the expense of a prescription dewormer, there are a huge variety of wallet-friendly options available just about anywhere online. One rule of caution: unless you are entirely certain that your cat only has one specific kind of worms, be sure to either buy a dewormer that handles them all (which is harder to find and pricier) or be sure to buy the two to three different kinds of dewormer you will need to ensure that you kill all four different kinds of the most likely worms your cat has.
Remember, these types of chemical dewormers can cause diarrhea or constipation in cats. If the latter occurs, you can read up on exactly how to relieve cat constipation by clicking here.
