Q. I think my cat has either tapeworms or roundworms. What can I buy to get rid of them?

A. This really will depend on what specific type of worm your cat has. Tape worm is segmented and looks like rice grains. Round worm is larger and cream colored. For tape worm, you can try droncit tabs and round worm can possibly be treated by trying the Sentry brand de wormer. Also, make sure kitty has flea treatment to help prevent tape worm in the future. If those methods do not with, taking a fecal sample to the vet is recommended.
