Looks like my cat...

Looks like my cat has some type of worm. I see it on the anus, but not in his stool. They are white. What to do. I have tried a over the counter de-wormer.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infestations your cat can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is your cat's name and age?

Dallas is his name. He is 8 months old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Dallas?

I think that is it.

Friend, it does sound like what you are seeing are tapeworms. You can buy a dewormer with the active ingredient Praziquantel, this works very well against tapeworms. Petsmart has a dewormer called Drontal which has 2 ingredients Praziquantel and Pyrantel; so it also treats against other parasites like Roundworms. Give it at label dose. Follow the link below so you can see it.
