They’d be going to their regular vet. So you think leave it until they’re a little older? I’d definitely feel less nervous if they were a little bit older. These two seem to be in a good place right now. They didn’t want to worm mum during pregnancy but she doesn’t appear to have worms or no sign of that anyway.Worm meds are mild and generally produce almost no side effects. Which vet are you taking them to?
Also, they seem healthy and content. You can feel free to wait on worming until they are a few weeks older, especially since your mama cat is healthy and worm-free, there is no rush to worm the kittens.
It’s more a preventative and definitely recommended for stray kittens and kittens born of strays.
They haven’t gave any worming treatment because I wasn’t keen for them to do it so they’ve just left it to me to do it. She said maybe in a weeks time. I did recalibrate, it’s digital scales. I might try again.Panacur is an excellent wormer! That’s great that you can administer it at home next time.
I am delighted to hear they are at 230! Have you tried recalibrating your scale? Or new batteries? Not sure if you’re using digital scales or not.
It sounds like a successful visit, and good to hear she agrees that it’s just a happy milk belly!
I’m going to worm from 28th. Thanks I don’t really know much about worming but yes babies are gaining nicely so I’m just going to go with that.Panacur is a nice mild de-wormer; that's why you have to give it 3 days in a row. So I wouldn't worry about it, I'd probably give it to them at 3 weeks under the circumstances. Has the mama cat been de-wormed?
I feel like vets' scales always run a bit high, but then maybe my scales always run a bit low . Anyway, the exact calibration doesn't matter too much, mainly you're looking for steady gains.
I weighed tonight and saffron hasn’t gained the way she has been. She’s only 247g whereas jack is now over 260g. I’ve noticed that the back nipple doesn’t seem to be producing as much now and they seem to fight over one nipple a lot. Super worried about potentially having to put them back on a bottle after what happened with blue.It sounds like they are beginning to regulate their own body temperatures and need the hot water bottles less. Since they will be 3 weeks old on Friday it sounds about right. They are getting ready to explore outside the nest soon! Not the whole house, of course, just one kitten-safe room.
I just squeezed the back nipple and milk is coming out, but neither kitten seems to want to stay latched onto that one. Jack is actually 168 so 20 grams above saffron now.I weighed tonight and saffron hasn’t gained the way she has been. She’s only 247g whereas jack is now over 260g.
