I just found out my cat has a tape worm and I have a 19 month old son who often plays with her. While I try to keep his hands clean and away from his face after playing with the cat, I'm not always watching. I haven't noticed any symptoms in my son but should I be deworming him as well? Is it harmful to deworm him at that age?

Not harmful
