    ok so here is my kinda dilema.
    sheldon was a year on wed (he also had a bday in july as my friend got mixed up with her dates). he's due his worming this week however i only have a syrup suitable for kittens, and i dnt get paid till next tues.
    so shud i wait till i get paid and buy adult wormer or shud i give him the wormer i have now and then give him the adult wormer in 3 months?

    I would wait and give him a multiwormer, like milbemax/ drontal etc.

    The syrup you have will only be for roundworms. Is he an outdoor cat?

    yeah he spends an hour or so outside everyday.
    not until a recent post did i realise the syrup only treats the one worm, i was aware those creatures had any more than one kind.

    will a week do much damage
