Roundworms are intestinal parasites in dogs and cats that can infect people as well. Most puppies and kittens are born with worms or become infecting while nursing, so they require a series of deworming treatments. A monthly dose of heartworm preventative is recommended thereafter, because it can also treat and control intestinal parasite infections.
