Customer Question

Just found white, very small, "worm" near my kittens rear end. She just came back from a check-up yesterday. They did not say she had anything. What could this be?

How old is she?


Did they look like white rice?

She is approx 6 mos old. We adopted her 2 mos ago. She has seen two vets recently. One for her spay and one yesterday for check-up and booster shot.

Dear friend,


May God bless you for adopting her.


These rice like things are Tapeworm segments. They come from swallowing a flea. Thhey dont always show up in stool checks. They are NOT serious.


Two doses of dronset 6 weeks apart and they will be gone.


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
