    Hi all
    It is coming up to the time when I need to give Buddy her first worming treatment and I wondered if anyone had advice on products and how to administer??

    (Buddy is 3yrs). I used drontal on advice from the vet. Ongoing, I will likely not worm because mine are indoor cats but in any case would not use drontal again. Milbemax has the same coverage but in a nice small tablet and will be my choice if / when I next worm.

    Administration: Take one slightly sleepy comfy cat gently on your lap, head facing towards you. Stroke and kiss. Gently open upper jaw and drop the tablet in the middle of the tongue towards the back. Close jaw. Stroke and kiss. Ease a small syringe into the side of the mouth give a little squirt of water. Stroke and kiss.

    I'm a fan of spot ons rather than pilling. Profender is my friend :)

    I use Milbemax which has to come from the vets. It's a tiny tablet and I don't have any problems giving it to any of my cats, or indeed the kittens. It covers all the UK worms.
