    Just came from vet visit (boosters) and the vet washed my brain out re worming :confused:
    My cats are indoor only, I have never ever seen a flea or a worm but I still worm them regularly.

    Fleas - Advantage (6 weekly spring - autumn). For worms it is Drontal each 3 months, on pregnant queen I do worm a week before due date (no matter when she was wormed before) with Panacur.
    Kittens with Panacur liquid (tough it was a mess and I probably will try paste) @ 6, 9 and 12 weeks. Advantage for kittens twice (if I remember correctly).

    Once kittens are away, queen is back on Drontal.

    Now - obviously Drontal and Panacur is not treating for heartworms so was "kindly" advised to use Milbemax on the queen and Panacur on kittens.

    I did some research before I started to stick on my plan, heartworm treatment didn't "came up" as essential for indoor cats.

    Any advice?
