My cat doesn’t go outside, why do I need to protect them against parasites?
Wondering whether indoor cats need protecting from parasites? Despite what many think, when it comes to parasites even indoor cats are at risk.
Parasites can hitchhike indoors on shoes/clothes, via open windows and doors, and even on the back of other animals – including dogs and cats.
Protection is particularly important for co-inhabiting (cat and dog households) as a study has shown that dogs and their owners can bring intestinal worm eggs inside the home on their paws and shoes
