I have a mouse cat, she's excellent at her job and catches a couple rodents & an occasional small bird every day. she almost ALWAYS eats them, with the exception of the gut. she will literally run from me if i try to take a dead one away to toss it. I know this is where her tapeworm infestation is coming from but it seems to be getting out of hand these days. I have always bought my wormer from the vet and she was always wormed at least once a month and rarely had visual signs of a worm problem. Recently though I have been having to ban her from coming inside for naps, and i feel awful because she is an older girl, but i am have been noticing occasionally a worm on her hind end and even found numerous "dead" ones on her bed a few days ago!!! it's AWFUL. She's not bloated or skinny, she's a healthy 8lbs probably but the infestation she's been showing lately has me really worried. Is it possible her regular wormer is just becoming ineffective? or maybe it's just too large to be effective? I am just at a loss as to what to do to be rid of them. I undertsand that because she's a mouser this is going to always be a problem i have to work to prevent and that's why she was regularly wormed, but it's just out of hand recently and i'm stumpped! Please Help!
