When should you worm a kitten?

Why do kittens need to be wormed?

Kittens become infected with hookworms and roundworms via their mother when they are young kittens.  Fleas spread tapeworm, even indoor cats can become infected.

Worms are more than a nuisance, they can have severe health problems in cats and especially young kittens.

  • Every 2 weeks from 2 weeks of age until 12 weeks of age.
  • Every month from 12 weeks of age until 6 months.
  • Every three months from 6 months.

Which worming product should I use for my kitten?

Please note, not all worming products can be used on very young kittens. Speak to your veterinarian about the most suitable worming product when treating kittens under 6 weeks of age.  Panacur, Drontal and Beapar are suitable for two-week old kittens.  We have outlined some of the more popular worming products on our quick guide to cat worming products page.
