Kittens can carry intestinal parasites that have a potential to affect themselves and also people. The classic intestinal parasites include roundworm (most common), hookworms and tapeworms. It is important to remember to regularly give deworming to kittens as recommended by your veterinarian. Please notify us of any travel plans or hunting habits as this can change your cat’s exposure and health risk which may require a different type of deworming medication. We include deworming for all of our kitten plan cats to help them (and you!) stay healthy.
Your kitten should receive deworming at the following ages:
8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 and 22 weeks
