Types of Intestinal Parasites in Cats

Intestinal parasites are organisms that live inside the intestines of a host animal and feed off its nutrients. Common types of intestinal parasites in cats include roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, and coccidia. Each type of parasite has its own unique symptoms which should be closely monitored.

Roundworms are the most common type of intestinal parasite in cats and can cause diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal distension, dehydration, weight loss, poor fur condition, lethargy, and anemia. Hookworms attach themselves to the lining of the intestines and feed on blood; they can cause anemia due to blood loss as well as severe itching around the rear end where larvae enter the skin.

Tapeworms cause weight loss due to malnutrition but don’t usually produce any other symptoms; however, if infestations become heavy enough they may cause vomiting or diarrhea. Finally, coccidia are single-celled organisms that live inside cells lining the intestines; they can cause bloody stools or diarrhea accompanied by abdominal pain or cramping.

Home Remedies for Treating Intestinal Parasites in Cats

The first step in treating your cat’s intestinal parasites is to identify which type is present so that you know how best to proceed with treatment.

You should also take your cat to a veterinarian for a thorough examination before attempting any home remedies as some parasites require medication not available over-the-counter.

Once you have identified the type of parasite present you can use one or more of these home remedies to help eliminate it from your pet’s system:

• Garlic – garlic is a natural repellent for many types of parasites and will also provide additional health benefits such as boosting immunity and aiding digestion. To use garlic as a remedy simply add it to food or water (start with small amounts).

• Apple cider vinegar – apple cider vinegar helps balance pH levels in the digestive system which makes it difficult for parasites to survive; add 1 teaspoon per day per 10 pounds bodyweight into food or water (always dilute).

• Probiotics – probiotics contain beneficial bacteria which helps keep bad bacteria under control; probiotics can be found in yogurt or supplements which should be given once daily for one month after initial infection has cleared up.

• Pumpkin seeds – pumpkin seeds contain an amino acid called cucurbitacin which paralyzes worms so they can then be expelled from the body; grind 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds into powder then mix with wet food twice daily until all symptoms have disappeared (for up to two weeks).

Conclusion: There are many different types of intestinal parasites that can affect cats but fortunately there are also several home remedies you can use safely at home without visiting a veterinarian first! These include garlic, apple cider vinegar, probiotics, and pumpkin seeds all of which work together synergistically to boost immunity while eliminating unwanted invaders from your pet’s digestive system. Remember though – always consult with a veterinarian before attempting any home remedies just in case medical intervention is required
