  • I just took in foster kittens, wouldn’t have done it if I would’ve known that they were sick. I was told that they had been cleared. Turns out they have Coccidia. My healthy adult cats have been exposed and I know nothing about it. Could you please tell me if my cats are going to need treatment now, could we get it?

  • What is your opinion on deworming a 3 week old kitten with “HomeoPet WRM CLEAR”? Instructions says kittens weighting less than 1 pound is 2 drops per dose of 8 ounces of water, administer 3 times a day for 7 days to prevent worms. I don’t understand

  • So i think my kitten has tapeworms but i didn’t see nor know about them until i saw the sesame seed like worms laying around in his bed, took him to the vet one week ago today and prescribed STRONGID and i’m supposed to give him his 2nd does next saturday. But the thing is, i still keep seeing the tapeworms lying around from where ever he this normal or no?

  • I really need your guidance on what to do. I got a kitten from a farm 3 weeks ago. She is 2.5 months old now. Stupid me waited so long to deworm her. She puked today and I found 2-3 long roundworms in her vomit. I drove to the vet immediately and got her deworming medicine. I have a 20 month old toddler. I am so scared that she may have ingested some of the eggs over the last 3 weeks. What are the chances of her getting roundworm from being around the kitten for 3 weeks? Will my house be infected with roundworm eggs now?? I am SOO freaking out right now 😭😥

  • I'm not sure if anyone will see this or not but it's worth a shot. Is it normal for kittens to be lethargic after getting dewormed? My 3 week old got dewormed today and he's been very sleepy.

  • I just watched your video before administrating the de-worming medicine that my vet gave me. This was super helpful! I think the key is slipping the syringe in the sides of their mouths. That and not hesitating: no need to rush, but don't dilly-dally either. Gave the medicine to both of my kittens, and everything went great! Thank you.

  • Thank you Kitten Lady, I discovered today your videos and instructionals, I am so glad I did. I adopted 2 cats last year. And a month ago I found a kitten in my backyard, I am taking care of him but last week he started vomiting worms and also in his poop. I took him to the vet and prescribed deworm medicine, the thing is I am really worried because everytime I give Minu (that's my baby cat name) his medicine, he spits it out :( what can I do? Thank you in advance, you are wonderful explaining all details you are so dedicated, blessings.

  • We have a foster kitten and he has been sick for one week- I don’t know if he was dewormed- we are going to adopted him, should we deworm him- the place we foster him from is the animal shelter- and don’t think they did? We done officially own him? He finally ate a tea spoon of boiled chicken and rice with a tiny bit of mushy cat food- but the entire week he would be good one day and vomiting the next then good the not- we are on a super budget so I have been watching vid after vid and I’m my dream last night I saw worms in him, so now I wanted to ask and I’m hoping to get him feel good ASAP. Pls lmk. I don’t know how much the vet will cost- is this something I could do in my own with out causing harm to little kitten? We are planning on adopting him from the shelter once he is healthy enough to get his next set of shots and neutered, I don’t know if they deworm there?

  • I lost many himalayan kittens last year due to coccydia. It was a nightmare . i found 2 very tiny abandoned kittens outside and brought them indoors and took care of them . they were sick with upper respiratory infection and diarrhea. Kept them separately from my himis- very soon discovered my Himalayan kittens started looking very sick And vomiting- diarhhea then mothers abandoned them .took to my vet - diagnosed coccydia . gave albon and amoxicillan- lost all kittens but 1. many many stray cats and kittens where i live . I feed them bec i can't stand to see hungry animals . and i take my shoes off at the door . am afraid to get it again . I still cry to this day over my kittens dying .

Now, I have 3 dogs, will my dogs get the worms the kitten expells in the yard? OR, will the worms come out dead? I don’t know how old kitten is, could be 3-6 months? 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • Now about five weeks ago, I was given a dumped kitten. He, and therefore also my very senior cat, just got a vet visit and dewormed, and will have a follow-up in two weeks for their 2nd dose. The kitten had a different dewormer when I first got him. Poor little guy. He's now thriving, but needs to learn not to bite/nip. My senior cat is very non-assertive, so not much help in teaching this. At least the kitten is growing, catching up. His first half a month with me, he was emaciated and tiny and catching up from lack of food and treatment and separation from his mom. He's a handful, but I'm keeping him, and just wish he and my senior cat would make friends instead of the avoidance and pursuit going on. (Kitten pursues, senior avoids. The kitten doesn't quite know how to make friends, really wants to, and the senior has only once delivered any well-deserved smackdown.) I think, hope, they will make friends.

  • My kitten is 5-6 weeks. She was dewormed at 3-4 weeks with a once dose of Fenbenazole 1ml of the 10% soln by an emergency vet visit due to a littermate being sick. Would I deworm now at 5-6 weeks of age using all three meds or just continue the Fenbenazole as instructed by the emergency Vet. Back story- three kittens were found in a hole under a neighbor’s shed. Kittens were crying and distressed. Mom never came over a few hours. I had no idea how to do kitten care but I couldn’t let them get euthanized.

  • Have you ever had kittens have side effects form the dewormer?? I dewormed my 7 week old kitten with pyrantel pamoate from my vet a day and a half ago and now he's vomited a few times and is very lethargic. The vet said he is probably having a reaction. I just want to know if this is common or not.

  • I noticed a dangerous typo on your website: 50mg\ml should be 4.54mg\ml. the link routes to the right concentration, but lest someone take down the info to purchase elsewhere, hope you're able to catch it soon. Thank you for all you do. I'm fostering week old orphaned raccoon kits and watching so many of your kitten videos has been a huge help ❤️🐈🐾🐨 Hmm. Nvm? Looks like you're using the 50mg one in the video. Is that because they're older? Do you ever use the 4.54, or was that a glitch that I thought I'd was linked to it
