Worms!

When I was little, a very long time ago, we lived in the country and a zillion cats. We knew when they needed worming as you'd see the buggers crawling out of their bums!

Now I am a grown up and have one adult cat. She has worm treatment in with her flea drops and a 6 monthly worming tablet.
What kind of worms are these for? She seems to be constantly hungry. Would I know if she had worms? Will regular treatment keep them at bay? She isn't a hunter really and when she does catch anything she just looks confused at it rather than eating it.

What meds are you giving her, Pipbin?

Everything that the vet said to cover her for all worms.
It's just that she is always complaining for food. I've out it down to her being a rescue and having been abandoned but I'm wondering if she has worms.

Quantex for tapeworm and Endectrid for fleas and worms.

How is her body weight?

Some litter tray folk have mentioned thyroid issues for rampant hunger. She may just be greedy. Our cat is, he would eat all day if he could.
