Well i trapped "kitty" in nov 04 and he's coming along.He lets me pet him and loves to play.But still cannot hold him. Anyway he has had worms ever since i got him. Has had Drontal twice and now was given Pyrantel. Has anyone used it? Is it better than Drontal?. I know it paralysis the worm . Whats the benefit of that over killing them? Maybe they ALL get paralyzed whereas the other kills "some". Will I ever get rid of the worms? Its funny the cat seems almost instantly happy after he gets the pill and his coat looks so much better.

It really depends on which worm they are treating, and the intervals in which it was given. Could you give a little more info?

Roundworms. When i first started befriending him he vomited bigger worms now they are very little.Its been almost 5 months now. He was a stray/feral and is only about 2 years old maybe less.

When treating roundworm, the dewormer should be given once, and then 10 days later with a follow up dose. If the problem reoccurs, you can dose them 3 times 10 days apart. Pyrantel should do the trick if you follow that protocol.

Keep litter boxes super clean as they can re infect themselves if they step in a mess and clean it off their feet. Bleaching the litter box will help kill eggs as well.
