Foot-long worms are infecting cats in the United States
Readers know that free-range house cats not only kill millions of native wildlife each year in the U.S. but also pose serious disease issues to the environment and people. Typically, these disease threats focused on rabies and toxoplasmosis. Now it appears that worms, foot-long worms, are yet another issue. To learn more visit the research that was done at Cornell University Cornell University Original Study.
I can only imagine how the free-range cat lobby will respond to this latest evidence regarding the potential presence of foot-long worms.
