Items you will need
- Bathroom scale
- Strongid T paste or liquid
- Moist cat food
Read the manufacturer’s directions on the Strongid-T package. Here' you'll find the proper dosage for your cat, according to the cat's weight. Generally you administer Strongid-T at a ratio of 2½ milligrams to 5 milligrams of Strongid-T per pound of cat weight, according to PetPlace.com.
Weigh your cat on a bathroom scale. Weigh yourself first, without the cat. Then hold your cat and weigh to get a combined weight for the two of you. Subtract your weight from the total. The remainder is your cat’s weight.
Follow the Strongid T package instructions and use the amount recommended. For instance, if your cat weighs 5 pounds and the package recommends 2½ milligrams per pound, the proper dose is 12.5 milligrams.
Measure the Strongid T using a syringe or the cup provided. Pour it over soft or moist cat food.
Repeat the dosage in three weeks -- pyrantel pamoate kills only adult worms. Waiting this long allows existing eggs to hatch; the second administration kills the live worms before they mature and mate.
- If food covered in Strongid T is not appetizing to your cat, squirt the dose directly in his mouth on the back of his tongue using a syringe with no needle. You can give Strongid T to your kitten/cat when he reaches 6 weeks old if your vet recommends it.
- If your feline friend develops severe vomiting or diarrhea while taking Strongid T, contact your vet immediately.
