I have an older cat that keeps getting reinfected with both tapeworms and round worms. I keep treating the worms with presription meds but he gets them again soon. Now we have a new cat and she has them too. I treat with flea prevention. Should I spray the yard to kill the worms? And can humans get them from the cats lying on the furniture etc.?
These worms are transmitted via the fecal oral route and via fleas ( tapes). I recommend that you use Revolution every month for the treatment of roundworms and fleas. The tapes need to be treated with praziquantel. Yes, I would spray the yard against fleas. vetcare
