I got a beautiful girl kitten from a lady who is basically over ran with cats people abandon to her.I ended up taking her sister too as I couldn't bear to leave her
I was told they would need reworm and flea at 10-12 weeks
They have both had issues weepy eyes and one has been snotty. At vet check they weren't overly concerned saying just wipe eyes twice daily. And keep eye on snotty one making sure her nose isn't too blocked
Their eyes clear up,but have fits and starts looking funny then clearing again
Last 2days their poos are softening and gone a mustardy yellow colour.a friend says its because they need second worming?
I rang local pet store and was told panacur is best,but can't sell me til Thurs as it's a licensed product and their no staff available who can serve me that.no advice on fleas as under both1kg
I took them in at 9 and 10weeks.they've had first round of jabs and being spayed Friday
Sorry for the essay,I've only ever taken in strong older rescue cats and they have stolen all our hearts and we want what's best for them.any advice gratefully received

Get them done at the vets on Friday when being spayed. Our local pet store was, frankly, useless at selling meds. Every time you went in there was never anyone there who could authorise the sale.

Thanks * gobbin* for answering
I wasn't sure of vets just plug a certain product?
My local pet store was worse than useless saying they should've been wormed weekly from.birth?!

they can be flea treated from 8 weeks old advantage spot on is what our rescue uses and panacur wormer and panacur is one of the best wormers get both of these from your vets they dont just push products to sell them they recomend the best ones, and im surprised that a vets has agreed to neuter any kitten that has the runs and snotty nose and weepy eyes are usually a sign of cat flu

Got given panacur and special wet meat pouches to try settle her tummy
Her eyes are much better,so they aren't concerned with that.spay postponed.she has a vet check wed and if tummy better they going ahead spay then

the food shes got if its gastro is good stuff my current foster had a runny tummy and the gastro food has sorted her, i didnt think a vet would neuter with a dodgy tummy because our vets always asks me about that when i take them for neuters, glad her eyes are better might have been conjuctivitis type thing , glad its not cat flu as thats horrible , all the best with both of them xx

Thanks Izzy they are breaking out of the bathroom hunting for food as they are used to kibble left down so its fair to say she's feeling better
Getting panacur in is another matter,she's a windmill of claws despite be wrap thick towel.little minx spits a little out to,but hoping it will still work!!
