Do worms in cats cause drooling?

  • No, drooling is not a sign of your cat having worms, but weight loss; lack of appetite and the fur on the cat appearing dry and not shiny. However, some medications for cats with worms can cause drooling. If you have not seen your vet please do so immediately as worms in cats can be transferred to children and adults. Worms are often normal in kittens or sometimes adult cats so please see your vet and express your concern about too strong a dosage of worm medications that could make your cat drool. Some cats will drool when they are content or want to be stroked, but it is wise to get the vet to give your cat a good going over physically.
