    The vet gave me a pill specifically for ringworm that the cat had to ingest. Perhaps it's too potent for a kitten. I was told ringworm can be picked up by mousing. How the mouse gets infested I didn't ask. I'm wondering if in this case it travelled thro the placenta.

    Ewwww!!!
    Sounds more like flat worms than tape worms.

    Gross story coming, reader beware!
    When I was 7 I lived in Texas and we had a huge water drain in front of the house. Mom let us play in to when it was "safe"... I got a BAD case of pinworms. I didn't tell my mom though because a kid at school had been talking about relations and you can only guess what I thought they were!!!

    Finally mom saw my BM. And freaked out!!! Rushed me to the DR where he also informed her that I had lice!!!
    She cried for days about how terrible of a mother she was! She didn't have a clue what either were! Poor mom!

    It kind of fell off the face of the earth. My parents were dewormed regularly when they were young.
    They say they are everywhere....if you go outside barefoot, if you don't wash your food, if you work in the garden then eat, if you play with animals ect..ect..you have them. All mammals do. The only time doctors will do anything is if they are causing problems....There is a tv show on right now about people and worms...
    I ordered the herbal stuff and did myself. Some stuff we eat helps ie. Garlic.. there are videos as well and they claim that most diseases/illness are caused by parasites.
    I know of several people that had to be treated. We tend to take better care of our animals welfare than our own.

    Don't feel bad, I got tapeworm when I was a kid, lol... I ate dirt, haha!

    But cat's get it from mice, mice get it from insects or something like that... Fleas carry alot of things.....

    I think I may worm myself, lol...
