How Long Does It Take to Deworm a Cat?

Answer

Deworming a cat can be done at home with a veterinarian's prescription. The length of time it takes for the initial deworming is only a few minutes if the cat is a willing participant. The cat should be held firmly and the mouth opened. The deworming pill should be placed on the back of the tongue and the mouth closed so that the cat will swallow the pill. The cat's throat should be gently rubbed to promote swallowing of the pill. This should be repeated until the pill has been swallowed completely. This procedure can be repeated in a few weeks if needed.
