“ Brand: Bob Martin / Animals Equipment Type: Cat Health „
I have kepts cats for 23 years.. It would have been longer if my mother had let me keep them when I lived at home! My cats by and large have been outdoor cats, which means they are pretty much destined to get worms.
Having realised my cats had worms... cue chasing the offending cat around the house with tissue paper to peel the worm segment off her bottom before it gets deposited anywhere other than the tray....Yuck! It was off to the supermarket to see if they stocked de-worming products, as my vet is quite a distance from me, and is bound to be more expensive.
Bob martin products have one big advantage over some of the more expensive (and dare I say more palatable or effective products) you can get them pretty much anywhere. These worming tablets come in a multi wormer pack, which never seems to contain quite the right combination of tablet quantities for my cats, this isn't a huge problem as they are relatively cheap. One of the disadvantages for this particular pack for me is that it comes with roundworm tablets whether you need them or not. I have never been aware of roundworm in any of my cats and I would prefer to have the option to buy one or the other. The benefit of having the wormers separate is being able to not over medicate your cat if you want to only worm for what you know they have. However you can now get a two in one Bob Martin worming tablet, which would probably be my choice as at least you don't have to fight two tablets down your cats throat - even though I've never been aware of the moggies picking up roundworm I often worm for it just in case.
These tablets appear to be effective, as when I started using them my cats did become worm free.... that is the ones that would actually take them. One of them was totally intolerant to the medication and would throw them up almost immediately, so I ended up getting neck drops for her, which kind of defeated going for the cheap option, as I ended up paying for two different products. The other three.... well if you're reading this you have probably tried getting tablets into cats before, and have the scars to prove it. My tribe will take them easiest if I disguise them in something they like with a strong flavour. However I have to cut the already small tablets into 4 and hide the pieces inside the smallest portion of (for example) pate , to try and get the bu**ers to eat it in one so they won't find the tablet and spit it out.
I must admit to never using the tablets anymore. I always buy the drops for the back of the neck, I have to get them for one cat anyway, so may as well use the same for all of them. They are much cheaper than they once were and available in most supremarkets (as well as the usual pet outlets) though still a little more expensive than the tablets. Although the cats are still not entirely happy with this process, it is effective and a lot easier than any tablet! But if you are looking for the cheapest possible effective option, (which I often have been) then these tablets are probably it.
Excellent, again, from Bob Martin.
With the only problem being actually giving it to the cat, this product is a full marks 10/10 for effectiveness and safety.
In the pack, you get three tablets for Round Worm and three for Tape Worm - both of which can be serious to your little kitty. With this also, you should consider some Flea products, because worms can come about from the cat licking larve of fleas and digesting it, with the end result coming out in the poo.
Over 24 hours of the pill being taken, the worms are killed in the cats intestinal tract, and are sometimes disolved by the acid in the stomach, however some will remain and be present in the excrement. For piece of mind, its always worth checking their poo to see if any of these worms are still wriggling around.
In my experience, the worming treatment works perfectly, and my cats are worm free within a couple of days, and the treatment can last upto 6 Months, but must be done regularly to maintain your cat. Bob Martin has a reputation of being the best on the market for affordable, home treatment of flea, worm and general pet accessories. And, as expected by myself, they duely deliver with this product.
Bob Martin pet supplies have a good reputaion and have been around for many years, so you would expect the product to do a good job. I have used these wormers on my cats but they are no good to get rid of worms if your cat has them. They are ok as a tablem - i still have the battle to get my cats to swallow them ive tried disguising them in food so a basically have to pop the tablet down the back of the throat (without getting savaged in the process). They dont seem to be powerful enough to stop all cats from contracting worm from rodents, birds etc, i live near a field and my cats bring in lots of live and dead animals into the house. So in my opinon they just arent strong enough to do a good enough job for the 3 months. Thats why they available at your local supermarket, i use strong wormers from my vets.
Firstly i have to say that i have no idea if this product is actually any good for getting rid of worms if your cat already has them but is great for preventing them.
Bob martins duel dewormers are for cats over the age of 6 months old and are not suitable for any cat younger than this, you will also need to ask your vet if you can use these if your cat is severely under weight, pregnant, epilectic or has kidney problems.
One tablet does the job of treating both tape worm and round worm or if given every 3 months as i do will stop your cat getting them.
These are tablet form which can be a bit difficult to get finicy eating cats to eat them, my tizer will eat anything and eats these streight out of my hand but my other cats i have to be a bit more crafty with, i either wrap the tablet in a piece of ham or crush it in with a small amount of there food.
These cost £2.60 a pack which is realy reasonable for the peace of mind they offer. None of my cats have ever had worms so they must be good at preventing them.
For cats over 6 months old
