my cats have worms - September 29th 2016, 04:42 AM

i have 2 cats maple and trinity, and today i discovered a few hours ago maple has worm so i have already been to vet and got them there treatment and they have now been treated for worms and flees, but i have a few questions i should of asked vet but i was just wrapped up with the fact i really cant afford this but i have no choice, i have stripped down most of my bedding i dont want them sleeping on my mattress though so i plan on removing sheet later tonight when the treatment has had time to do something, i got told by other people online i also need to vacumn and i should treat myself? vacumning is easy but i cant really afford to treat myself so what is the risk? i did get onto it as soon as i noticed, and i have cardboard boxes and paper bags around do i need to get rid of them

When you say worms you mean ringworms? When i first got my cat, the little fellow had fleas and ringworms too. My sisters and i caught ringworm. My oldest sister didnt though because she didn't interact with my cat much. It also stops being contagious during treatment. The ringworms showed up on my skin, in itchy blistery spots. I don't think the cream for human treatment would be expensive, but I could be wrong. Would it be possible to talk to someone at the pharmacy about a cheaper option? If you don't have the ringworms on your skin, I don't think there would be anything to treat on yourself. Did you also catch fleas? My cat had fleas but I didn't catch it from him. We treated him a couple weeks after we got him, before he was allowed into any room besides the living room. That said, it can be hard if you already had these cats for sometime. Did the vet give any recommendations?

nah def not ring worm think it was tapeworm the vet said when i described it to her, and no humans cant really catch flees we can get bitten during infestations and they do well living on clothes and shoes, but we humans dont actually get flees
