As a result we recommend you seek advice from our vets or nurses and obtain a trusted product from ourselves with the professional advice that goes with our products.
The most common worms are roundworms (Toxocara cati and Toxoscaris leonina) and tapeworms (Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaformis).
Worming can be performed from 2wks of age.
2-12 weeks old – worm every 2wks
12-24 weeks – worm once monthly
>24 weeks – worm every 3 months
(unless your cat hunts or you have children <3yrs old, we then recommend to keep worming at a once monthly interval)
The reason for the last point in relation to your children is that some worms are zoonotic, ie. They can pass from animals to humans and cause disease. Young children are very hands on with their new kitten and so more at risk and also have no hygiene skills yet. The main risk is from a worm called Toxocara which can cause blindness in children. There have been many cases reported in the North West.
We offer a free weigh and worm service within all our branches by trained nurses, these are free of charge, you only pay for the product. This is important as your kittens grows as the dose might alter.
