My cat Javon was using the litter box, when he came out there was a off white thing hanging from his anus. I figured since he is a long haired cat that maybe he had some fecies on his fir. I grabbed a towel to clean him up and it was some sort of long stringy thing, it was moving, so it makes me think it might be some sort of worm. I also have 3 other cats and a disabled child. Is this transferable to the other animals? Is there anything I can do to clear this up without taking him to the vet?
Yes, this sounds like worms. The best way to have your pet treated is to have the stool analyzed by the vet so the best treatment can be given. Different worms are treated differently. There are over the counter wormers sold but I end up seeing the patients anyway. ( so you end up spending more) vetcare
