    Is there anything that I can get at Walmart or any other store that I can use to rid my cats of worms?

    What kind of worms?
    They do have medicine for cats, one for tape worms and one for round worms. I get dewormer at our feed store for the dogs and cats.

    Thank you for the information. I will get some of that and use it on them. I have a lot of stray cats around my house and I need to get rid of their worms because my chickens are eating the cat poo. Just found out the chickens have worms and I think the infested cat poo is contributing to the chicken worms. I want all worms to be gone!!! This is so gross. [​IMG]

    For tape worms, you'll probably want to look for praziquantel. It's OTC, and works great. I'm not sure if walmart will sell it. I get mine from the feedstore. On-line it is much cheaper. 8 doses on-line are the same price as 3 doses in the store.

    Imp-So glad to be rid of tape worms (in the cats) [​IMG]
