Bob Martin 2 in 1 Dewormer Tablets
Advantages: My cat will swallow them wrapped in ham, can be broken in half, easy to understand weight guidelines
We have a cat and we like to look after her as good as we can. Since she was 12 weeks old we have been using worming tablets and granules every three months and this Bob Martin product is one that we have used fairly recently.
Cats can suffer from roundworm and tapeworm both of which are very unpleasant and can lead to loss of appetite, weight loss, bloated tummy, dull fur and general unwell animals.
When we first started using worming tablets we would struggle to get our kitten to eat one and it ended up with us putting it in her mouth and basically holding her mouth closed until she ate it. This made us both feel terrible and I am sure it did not help her build up her trust in us. After she brought one tablet up a couple of times we realised that we needed a more effective yet gentle way to get her to take her tablet. A folded up piece of ham did the trick and she gobbled it down with no problems at all. From the day we discovered this we have never had another problem with her bringing up a tablet although we have also tried the granules in the past so its not like the tablets are a regular occurrence in her ham!
The current price for two of these tablets is just under £6.00 in Sainsburys stores and this is the standard price. I am yet to see these tablets on offer as if I did I would certainly stock up. When our cat was a kitten she only needed half a tablet and while these are tough tablets it was simple enough to break in half and leave one half in the foil blister pack and put it back in to the box. As our kitten grew up in to a cat she now needs 1 tablet. The packet contains the guideline amount based on your cats weight and I have found the best way to accurately weigh her is to put a couple of cat treats on the scales and then pop her on, she sits there happily munching and in just a few seconds I know that the dosage I was going to give her is correct.
So far we have not experienced any worms in our cats litter tray and she seems to be holding her weight quite well despite health problems. The vet seemed happy on her last check up two weeks ago when we advised that her flea treatments and worming tablets were up to date. We prefer to keep on top of using these every 3 months rather than waiting for any problems to arise. Our cat is a house cat but occasionally she does interact with other cats and I do not like to run the risk of her potentially picking up fleas or something else and that developing to worms.
We have found these dewormer tablets to be quite widely available and the price seems fairly similar in the pet stores that we frequent. We usually just pick ours up with the weekly shop and I just give her the tablet at the start of March, June, September & December as this fits in well with when she arrived to live with us and keeping her schedule nice and up to date.
Summary: Decent tablets keeping my cat free of worms.
