I am a cat breeder; a responsible cat breeder. Imagine my feelings, when one of people, who bought a kitten from me, suddenly claimed the kitten had hookworms.
<br>The hookworms can only be diagnosed by eggs present in cat's fecal. The fecal sample is observed under microscope to see the eggs. Those were definitely golden eggs the vet observed...
<br>I administer drontal, a best on the market wide spectrum wormer, to my kittens twice, before every vaccination. This would kill not just hookworms, their larvae and eggs, but even memory of hookworms in ten generations.
<br>I was enraged and called the hospital. The doctor never returned my call. But he talked to my buyer and told her that it means nothing, if my veterinarian repeats the test and does not find the hookworm eggs; the hookworms may still be there... He suggested he treats them with Praziquantel. For those, who are curious, what Praziquantel is, it is a wormer sold in every pet store, which kills tapeworms and completely ineffective on hookworms.
<br>PEOPLE, STAY AWAY from this crookworm!
