Resident BondiVet.com Vet Laura Musgrove advises us on how to give medication to your furry friend...

It can be an unpleasant experience trying to worm your cat and giving medication to our feline can sometimes be difficult.

BondiVet.com Expert, Veterinarian Laura Musgrave, gives us some tips on how to de-worms your little buddy:

"There are several types of worms that kittens and cats can have including roundworm, hookworm and tapeworm.

It is important to de-worm your cat regularly starting at a young age, because infection can lead to problems such as diarrhoea and poor growth.

There are a range of products to choose from when it comes to worming cats, both oral preparations and topical applications (top-spots). It is important to discuss with your vet which products treat which type of worm so you ensure the best protection for your little one and their lifestyle.

Most veterinary clinics would be happy to help you out in choosing an option that best suits both you and your cat - They can show you little tricks on how to give tablets more easily and if your cat is a real feisty one, they can sometimes do it for you!"
