Patient : Hello! I just got a cat who I've found out had worms. The first days I let it sleep with me but after I gave her a preventive deworming agent I found out some (dead) worms in my bed. Now I'm worried... I've read that human can get those kind of worms. How easy is it to catch them? If one eat a worm egg does it always hatch and survive inside of you? Should I ask my doctor for some deworming agent of my own?
