    My little kitten that I found at the zoo has tape worms. :( I just found one on her rear end. So I guess I have to go to the vet and get her some wormer too. Does anyone know if kitten wormer costs more than goat and horse wormer or less?

    Crissa, do you have a Tractor Supply near you? They carry tapeworm pills for cats...though I think she would need to be at least 8 weeks for her to have the wormer.

    It is Tradewinds brand.

    It's about 45 minutes to the nearest TSC, sadly. And I think they close in an hour or so. And I have no idea on exactly how old she is, but she's probably close to 8 weeks. I have to go to the vet tomorrow and get a fecal done on my goats and lamb anyways, so I guess I can just ask him about a good wormer for her. (I'm just a little scared to see the price tag)

    For my barn cats I just give a pea size amount of the safeguard for 3 days.
