IN HOC SIGNO VINCES
I was wondering if anyone knew the name of a relatively cheap but effective dewormer for felines? I have five cats , but have only noticed the worms in one , though I want to give it to all of them just to be on the safe side.
Look, I know you want to save money but take it to the vet and get what he recommends. You are better off paying a little more and getting them all in one trip then saving money and getting some that don't work completely the first time.
Its not that I want to save money , I am not that cheap. I am flat broke at the moment , and can't afford the top shelf deworming products , so I kinda was looking for a less expensive fix tell I can afford it.
Look online. Google Foster & Smith, Jeffers, and any other veterinary supply you can find. Look for cat dewormers, price them and make note of what their active ingredient(s) are called and make note of what types of worms said dewormers are designed to kill.
Armed with this knowledge you can possibly purchase the appropriate cat dewormer from a pet supply shop. Except there's a few things I'd like to know: what kind of worms is your cat suffering from? How did you diagnose it? Who is telling you this cat has worms, and how are they backing that up?
Be extremely careful when dealing with veterinary medicine. If you aren't sure about it, don't do it, and take the cat to the vet.
I'm not going to recomend this to you, seeing as how you're probably gonna do it wrong, but heres how we do it:
Considering we need to worm cattle every once in awhile, we already invest in industrial strength cattle de-wormer. What we do instead of investing more money for de-wormer specifically for cats & dogs, we've been very cautiously giving doses of the high potency stuff meant for the cows.
I don't know the dosage. Giving too little isn't gonna do any good, and too much will downright kill the thing.
Even if you could get it right, or me to find out the dosage: I doubt you have a feedstore close enough to warrant trying this out.
