Puppies & Kittens

  1. Start deworming process as early as two weeks:

    1. Three days of Panacur, repeat every 2 weeks

    2. One day of Ponazuril, repeat in 10 days 

      • If coccidia positive, change to 3 consecutive days, no need                                                                          to repeat unless fecal positive again

  2. Fecal on intake.

    • For litters, a group fecal is acceptable for this intake fecal. 
      *This means fecal samples from several babies are mixed

      together & run as one fecal sample.

  3. Repeat fecal 2-3 weeks after deworming, regardless of initial fecal results.​

    • In the event of a positive fecal post deworming, repeat deworming and then repeat fecal 3 weeks post deworming.

    • If the repeat fecal is holding up an approved adopter, repeat fecal can occur earlier, but it may still read as a positive.


Fecal protocol is the same for adults as it is for puppies and kittens, with the following exceptions:

  • Initial fecal before deworming is not required, but highly recommended.

  • Deworming does not need to be repeated if the first fecal is negative.
