I have the chicken inside my house in a hospital pen on my linoleum kitchen floor in the corner while he is being dewormed (with Piperazine), but there are just newspapers on the floor and my cat keeps hanging out by the pen. Is there any possibility that my cat (or I for that matter) could pick up the roundworm eggs? (I.E. my cat sits by the pen and then I pick up the cat, etc). I realize I should put the chicken outside but it's way too cold for him to be outside right now. I'm clenning up the newspapers often, and trashing them, but the worm shedding is pretty major right now. Are roundworms the same for human, cat, and chicken? Please advise, because I may need to rework my hospital pen tonight if that's possible.
