I worm my kittens once they are eating properly about 4-5 weeks onwards. 3 days liquid panacur. But I flea and worm the mother during the first week the kittens are born. Penny :D

Hi I do mine at 3, 6, 11 weeks old with panacur liquid. They are then done again about 5 months with drontal.

Thanks for your replies. Mine are 6 weeks old and I have wormed them for 3 days with panacur. Is it ok to worm the mum now or should I leave her ? The kittens are on solids and also feeding from mum. If kittens are wormed late does it affect their health/ Thanks

Kittens are usually wormed on average once a month for the first 6 months and then according to status.
Most only need fleaing and worming every 3 months after that as a routine if kept as a housecat only.
If they venture outside continue the reguliar monthly programme. Use droncit for tape worms as well if a cat is a mouser.
Treat the mum when you do the kittens a multi purpose flea and wormer is easier for her.
I don't use the sprays they are carcinogen no good to you to inhale and the mother cat will lick it off so will the kittens.
Penny :D

Some say worm at 2 weeks then 2 week intervals, but i dont worm mine until they are eating solids, i use panacur paste,then every 2 weeks :)
I have just wormed mum with Drontal,
One of the kittens has a bit of a runny tummy, not sure if its the worming, just finished a course of 3 days,or maybe keep going back to mum for a feed, :?
Looks more like a yellow diarrohea, so wondered if it was milk from mum causing it, but only 1 is affected,
