Other Information: Large roundworms are the greatest threat to your cat during kittenhood and can kill cats by robbing them of the vital nourishment needed to live and grow. Many kittens are born with large roundworms which are passed from the mother to the kitten(s).

Large roundworms are common so it is important to watch for these symptoms in your cat:

● Vomiting and diarrhea

● Bloating (pot belly)

● Dull and lackluster coat

● Dull and lackluster general appearance
