I have a 13 week old Kitten adopted from a shelter, he is eating well, playing good and acts like a typical kitten should. However I noticed a couple small white worms that look almost like a piece of rice on his rear. Contacted my vet and they want a stool sample. Just noticed this today and he usally wont have a bowl movement until later in the day. I would like to know if anyone has had this and does this sound like tape worms?Also my wife has never had a pet this is her first so she is just totally grossed out by this and after she read some of the stff posted on the internet today this made it even worse. She read where humans can get these, my vet say only way would be to injest them. I plan on getting the sample take it to the vet and get the medication, also does anyone now what type of medication they treat? I saw somewhere on this site where its one pill. Also I thought about making up an excuse to leave work to speed things up so I wont have to wait but then againg he probably wont go to the box until tonight anyway, is there any harm in waiting another day? My vet didnt seem to concerned, wish i could say the same for my wife!!!!
