Nursing cat has worms Q: We took in a pregnant stray cat several weeks ago. the kittens are 3 weeks old as of yesterday. the cat has worms. they are a flat white worm. i''m wondering when it would be safe to treat the mother cat for these worms and will it also mean that the kittens have worms? what treatment do you recommend and when? also, what is an appropriate age to give the kittens away? thank you.
A: You can safely worm kittens with nemex for most common worms and give one dose now and then in 3 weeks. safe to give away after 6 weeks of age if eating well on own. also sounds like mother has tapeworms so can worm her with droncit. tapes are not as readily transmissable to kittens so i would just observe them to see if see any flat segments in their stools or near their anal openings
