Dewormer for kitten?

    Dewormer for kitten?

    This is our new kitten Lyla. She was found in dead traffic on a bridge in New Jersey. Someone might have dumped her in the traffic. My in laws rescued her and we took her in. She's absolutely wonderful. She's having a bit of a poop problem though, her stomach is bloated we were thinking its intestinal worms. We gave her a liquid kitten and cat round wormdewormer and she took it last night. Should that get rid of them?

    depends on what kind of worms. That over the counter stuff is iffy, you need to take a stool sample to the vet so you can get the correct wormer. A bloated belly is a sign of worms but there are many intestinal worms so she needs to be treated for what she has and a general wormer may not do it.

    Cute kitten there, I agree the vet has to identify the worms in the stool in order to prescribe or recommend the right dewormer.

    Thank goodness you saved this baby...quite a looker! I would only go through my vet's office for medications. A fecal sample will tell them the type of worm and then the can give you the medicine as well as dosage recommendation. Please keep us posted on Lyla & WELCOME!!
