Q.

Worms

hi,
my cat had worms and i'm just a bit concerned about the possibilty of the cat infecting my 10 month old baby.
i have started worm treatment on the cat, and keep baby away from cat, will i need to deworm baby just in case?
the cat and baby have been in the same space although not at the same time... could my baby have worms? how can i tell?

Your baby could get worms especially if she has been in close contact with the cat.Give your baby a single dose [5 ml] of Vermox syrup.
