Hi this is Dr. Gabby. What do the worms look like? How long are the worms? What is the name of the worm medication you want to use?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not seen the worms.....her gums are white....the medicine Pro-Sense Round worm liquid
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 1 year ago.
No it is toxic to cat.In addition, round worms would not cause white gums.And, if the worms were bad enough to cause white gums you would be seeing whipworms or hookworms in the stool and they are longer like spaghetti.

If her gums are pale she is either anemic, with not enough red blood cells, or there is a problem with the oxygen circulation in her blood stream.
