Can You Deworm A Cat On Antibiotics

If your cat is on antibiotics for another medical condition, it may be better to wait until the medicine runs out before deworming them.

Can You Put Cat Worming Tablets in Food
There are two types of worming tablets for cats: those that can be put in food and those that cannot. Most cat owners use worming tablets to prevent their pet from contracting roundworm, hookworm, or whipworm. In the past, many vets have recommended putting these worming tablets either on the bottom of a food bowl or in a small container to give your cat water so they can lick them off. This is no longer recommended as it could cause your pet’s stomach to become blocked.

Calming Down Your Cat After Giving Them A Dewormer

help calm down your cat as well as having warm milk available in case they get hungry during this period of time.
- Make sure you keep any medications and other items away from cats so that they don’t drink or eat them by mistake.
