What is the best over the counter treatment for worms in cats

Resolved Question:

What is the best over the counter treatment for worms in cats? My cat has the white worms coming out of it's butt and the little sesame seed like droppings in the bedding. There are 2 other cats in the house so I believe I should treat all three, correct?

Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

These are most likely tapeworms and these are spread by fleas. First, make sure you are using a good flea control and REvolution is a good one. next , purchase Tradewinds wormer at the pet store. This is OTC and will rid all your cats of these worms. These can only be spread by fleas but I would still treat all 3 cats.

Good Luck!
