My cat has little white worms in her stool. What is the best medicine to buy at the store to get rid of these?

Dr. Loretta :

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

Dr. Loretta :

Most likely if they appear like grains of rice, these are tapeworms and this requires a special wormer.The best one is called Tradewinds tapeworm medication.It contains the drug Praziquantal which is the drug needed to rid Muffin of these parasites. These are speard by fleas so be sure to get Muffin a good flea control...does that help?


Yes very much. Can this medicine be bought at a local store like Walmart?


Thank you .

I hope you and Muffin have a great day!!
