    Harley was at the vet today for his second vaccination and I stupidly forgot to buy wormer. I was told from the CPL to use panacure paste.

    Is the panacure sold in pets at home the same as you would get from the vets?

    It's cheaper to use Panacur and you can buy it at P@H - you can also buy it quite a bit cheaper online.

    It's a lot easier to use Milbemax! Panacur has to be given on 3 sucessive days, and my experience was that after the first day the kittens I was fostering were wary of me. It was also very messy - I was using the suspension. Did all 6 kittens and mum yesterday with Milbemax in a few minutes. It helped they were all tucked up togeather and sleepy.

    Ring your vet, tell them you forgot, ask if they can supply Milbemax - hopefully they weighed Harley as the dose depends on the weight, as does the dose for Panacur.

    Long-term Milbemax is better as it deals with tape worms as well as round worms, but round worms are the issue for kittens.

    I only do so with very young kittens. The half dose over 3 days is the safer, gentler option if young kittens could be carrying a large worm burden. If you'd happily use any other single dose wormer then there's no reason not to use the single dose protocol with Panacur.

    Is that a tablet or paste? Approximately how much does it cost?
