Natural Worm Treatment
for Cats -
Chemical or Herbal Medicine
for Roundworm?

by Gary Le Mon

Finding a natural worm treatment for cats – one that’s cat-safe and actually works! - can challenge even the best of us feline fanciers.

Pesticide-based medicines made by the big drug companies may not be our pet's safest option. And we would really appreciate a remedy that naturally eliminates and prevents all internal parasites, not just one or two of them.

So here is a natural herbal remedy for cat worms that will safely kill and flush away multiple internal parasites including our featured worm, Roundworm, one of the most common worms in cats.

And you thought it was spaghetti


More often than we might suspect, cats are afflicted with intestinal parasites known as roundworms. There are two species of roundworm known to infect felines. Toxocara cati is the scientific term for the most common type of roundworm infection in cats. Toxascaris leonina is less common in cats, but may be found in both cats and dogs.

Roundworms are parasites that swim freely in the cat’s intestines and feed from the contents thereof. Roundworms are three to six inches long and resemble spaghetti. They are sometimes seen in the animal’s vomit or passed in the stool. Since roundworms compete with the cat for food, the cat will become malnourished when the worm infestation is left untreated.

You are what you eat

Cats can become infected when they swallow eggs that contain infected larvae. The eggs can be found in the feces of infected cats or in the hosts they consume while hunting. Roundworms can be found in hosts such as rodents and birds. Infected female cats can transmit the parasites to kittens through their milk when nursing. The infective larvae of roundworm eggs can also be present in soils.

What to look for

Symptoms of roundworms include

  • diarrhea
  • vomiting
  • weight loss

Vomiting is present particularly when there is a heavy infestation of roundworm.

  • The coat may be dull, rough and in generally poor condition
  • An infected cat may exhibit a decrease in appetite
  • Kittens with roundworm may appear to have a potbellied appearance

Severe cases of roundworm can lead to conditions such as intestinal blockage or pneumonia that may result in death in kittens or older debilitated cats.

What to do

All dog and cat owners should consult their veterinarian at least annually for a check up. Conventional de-worming treatments use harsh chemical pesticides but are relatively simple and inexpensive. The dead worms pass through the stool after the use of de-worming medication. Typically, two to three treatments are needed to kill the immature eggs.

The medication may be given at two or three week intervals as prescribed by your vet. Some medications are repeated monthly since adult cats remain at risk of developing re-infestation throughout their lives. The prognosis of roundworm disinfection is good if medicine is administered promptly.

What about a natural alternative?

FourGuard Liquid Herbal Parasite Formula for Dogs and Cats

Many holistic veterinarians are turning to a natural worm treatment for cats and dogs called FourGuard Herbal Parasite Formula. This USDA Certified Organic four-herb "home remedy" comes in capsules (powder) and liquid as Functional Food Drops which you simply add to wet or dry food. FourGuard is perfectly safe for cats and kittens. It works from the inside out by making your cat a clean, healthy, uninviting host for internal parasites of all kinds.

What else to do

Pet owners can lower the risk of roundworm infestation by controlling pests such as rodents and by removing pet feces promptly. Feces should be removed from litter boxes daily and the area cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis. Although indoor cats are not immune to roundworms, keeping them inside can help prevent infestation through their natural hunting behavior.

I am so thankful I found your website!

"I have a 13 year old mixed Shepherd/Hound with 2 bulging disks, arthritis in his hips and cataracts that are starting to form. He has done a 180 since the first week of being on your products. He is playful and wagging his tail much more often than he has been over the past couple of years. I am so thankful that I found your website and I tell everyone that I know with pets here in NYC about your products. My dog hasn't limped since he started on the FlexaSure Dog Arthritis Cell Cleanse and Joint Hydration Formula and the Primalix Arthridia and Cataractin Formulas. I cannot thank you enough for making these products available. It has eased my best friends pain so he can participate in daily activities and given me more time with him. Thank you so much!"

My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due. With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow. I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!). My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

Vet Ophthlamologist confirmed Sonny blind. Thanks to Primalix Cataractin he can now see! Cheryl and Sonny from Wisconsin

"Sonny our 13 year old miniature poodle would brush along objects to find his way. March 2014 a Vet. Ophthalmologist confirmed completely formed cataracts. Risky surgery was not an option. March 28, 2014 Sonny started Cataractin and DailySure. May 2014 Sonny was seeing good enough to walk around on his own. August 2014 Sonny site is really good and he is running around enjoying his freedom and us. We are in AWE and so grateful for you helping others live a better life!"

Delighted it worked so fast
Carol and Max from Illinois

Carol C testimonial "I have to tell you how happy I am to have gotten the Cataractin. I received it in the mail a couple days after ordering it. I was very excited to try this on my girl Max. She is a 14 year old beagle. She is in great shape but has had trouble seeing. Her brown eyes were foggy blue with a whitish blue spot in both eyes. She couldn't see to jump up to sit with me. After just two days of taking Primalix Cataractin her eyes are looking way better.

"I was wanting this to work but am so delighted that it worked so fast. She is not completely better but she is well on her way. The best part is she can see to jump up in my chair now. My only regret is that I wish I would have purchased this 6 months ago when I first saw it on the web.
Thank you so much,"
Ms. Carol Camper and Max
