    Hey everyone, just looking in some guidelines as far as deworming both Momma's and all 5 kittens. One kitten is a couple days shy of 3 weeks and the other four are a day over a week old.

    My vet's recommendation was very much varied, but given you have no history, I would do both mums, and baby one, kittens from foster 2 once they are two weeks old, five and eight weeks ....

    Panacur is fine for mum and the older kitten - it's messy to give and you have to dose the kittens over a three day period. I think 3 weeks is the youngest age you can use it but the instructions give clear information on age and dosage. I find the paste better to use than the liquid

    I always used to use Panacur granules. Don't they make them any longer? I tried the syringe once but felt that the wall did not really need a dose of wormer so it was wasted. I suppose Panacur may not be available in US?

    Ah, forgot that @DanW88 is not in the UK
    It's often my table cloth that gets a dose of wormer :oops: You can still get the granules - I haven't tried them before, might have to have a look if they're easier to use
