cat with worms

My 2 year old cat has white 'shape-shifting' worms, about 1/2" long at the most. I've tried treating him with piperazine adipate, as directed on the package, but they aren't being eradicated. Is there an herbal treatment for this? If not, any solution is welcome.

Thank you-

Hi Jeanine,

The worm description suggests a segment of tapeworm. It is not eliminated by piperazine.

You should bring a sample of the worm to your Vet for identification and treatment.
