Cat Worming

Worming your cat is extremely important to protect not only your cat against unwanted parasites, but also yourself.

We use Veterinary Licenced wormers in Budget Vets which protect your cat against the following worms –

  • Roundworm
  • Hookworm
  • Tapeworm
  • Heartworm

This wormer can be given to kittens from 6 weeks of age or 0.5kg in weight, whichever comes first. This is extremely important as kittens are highly susceptible to worms, and some can be passed to kittens from their Mother. Nursing queens can be treated safely with this treatment.

We recommend the following worming schedule –

  • Kittens from 6 to 12 weeks – worm every 2 weeks
  • Kittens from 12 weeks to 6 months – worm monthly
  • Cats from 6 months old – worm every 3 months as a minimum

If you have small children in your house hold we recommend monthly worming for all cats until the children are old enough to wash their hands after playing with the cat, to prevent eggs being ingested.

We also recommend that you bring your cat in to one of our branches for a Free weight check every time you require worm tablets as their dosage requirements will change as they get bigger. Once they are fully grown weight checks every 3 months are sufficient.

We offer a kitten package for £54.99 which includes – 1st and 2nd vaccine, microchip, 1 x flea treatment, 1 x wormer. Please contact the branch you would like to visit to make an appointment.
