Small Black Worms

Species: cat | Category: parasites | Submitted: 24 August 2007 10:37AM | viewed 8936 times
Q Louise asks:

It has been noticed on Chili's bed that there are lots of small black worms sometimes and others flea size. I have groomed her but nothing comes from her fur. What could these be and how do I treat them?

Q Our vet says: Could they be flea faeces? Are they comma shaped? If you make them damp on a moist piece of kitchen roll does a red ring appear around them? If so they are flea faeces- otherwise I could not say what they might be. It would be best to take a small sample of them along to your local vet for identification.
