Ear Mites, Body Mites, Heart Worms, Round Worms
One thing cures all of these: Ivermectin
You apply it the same as you would frontline spot on or any other spot on flea product!
Ivermectin is a clear liquid it looks like water, you can usally buy it from any feed store in your area.
To use ivermectin on an adult cat first you will need some syringes (NO NEEDLES)
You can buy 3cc syringes that are easily marked with a big M on them if you fill the syringe with ivermectin only to the M on the syringe it will be the correct amount for dosing with ivermectin rather then counting tiny lines on a syringe. Trust me this is much easier!
Directions: Take a 3cc Syringe fill it up to the big M on the syringe & squirt it between a cats shoulder blades.
(NO NEEDLE ATTACHED TO SYRINGE IS USED) Its much easier to measure out when a syringe is already marked so that is why I only use the syringes with a big M on them rather then trying to count tiny lines on the syringe for accuracy.
You can buy these type of syringes here: East Coast Medical supply
If for some reason you cant find the 3cc syringes with the big M on them then just fill your 3cc syringe up by counting the 3 small lines from the tip of the syringe, look at the tip then count upward 123 lines as you draw the medication.
This is a tiny amount very tiny, it equals to 3 Tenths of a cc for adult cats of any weight or size all get the same amount.
You can also use a 1cc regular syringe that measures in Tenths and not units, fill syringe with Ivomec to the .3 on the syringe This is 3 Tenths of a cc Only apply topically NEVER orally!
And remember 3ML = 3ccs
ML = CC's in medical syringe dosing.
Kittens Dosage: Do Not use on Kittens PERIOD !!
this is because of the blood brain barrier in kittens.
To kill feline scabies on a kitten just spray Frontline on kitten and massage into hair.
Frontline spray is safe on kittens just 2 days old.
USE CAUTION: Only lightly spray a small kitten!
Ivermectin will kill all ear mites, &
(Body Mites = Notoedric Cati Mites also known as Feline Scabies)
Notoedric Mange or Cat Mange
You can buy the syringes & the ivomec without a prescription.
To Buy the 3cc syringes with the big M on them they are called: NIPRO 3ml without needle disposable syringe latex free luer lock tip.
To Buy Click Here: Coast Medical Supply
Buy the Ivermectin which is:
Ivomec 1% injection for cattle and swine Make sure its not the PLUS kind only the regular kind also, there is no need to dilute the ivermectin because you are only applying a very minimal amount.
To Buy Click Here: Jeffers Livestock
NOTE: This link is only partially working so when you get to jeffers site please type in IVOMEC on their search to pull up the product.
Please Note: a 3cc Syringe is the same as a 3ml syringe.
ml = cc's
If you are trying to cure heart worms, round worms, & ear mites
treat your cat with Ivermectin Once a month.
If you are trying to cure Feline Scabies treat cat once a week for 4 weeks.
Ivermectin also cures whip worms!!!
However, it will not cure Tape Worms!
Also Note: Cats do not need heartworm tests to be treated for heartworms!
Heart Worm tests usually produce a false negative in cats!
You can buy most of these antibiotics here at:
The Aquatic Pharmacy
Azithromycin (Fish Zithromax)
You would take 600mg of Azithromycin and mix it with 15cc's of either water, or say a cherry syrup, shake well no need to refrigerate either.
Cat dose is:
for an average three kg adult cat would be 3 times 20mg which = 60mg or 1.5mls of syrup once daily.
Amoxicillin (Fish Mox)
You can buy fish mox which is amoxicillin for fish and use it on your cats, this works great if you have a multi cat household where all the cats catch a URI at the same time.
Take one 250mg capsule and pour it into a gallon of water, shake well and then use this as your cats only water source for 7-10 days.
Or.... to give orally to one kitty at a time, simply take two 250mg capsules and open up into a small bottle then add 20cc,s of Pedia Lite banana flavored shake for infants, shake well and syringe feed 1cc twice a day for an adult cat, or 5 tenths of a cc to a older kitten once daily.
Doxycyclene for fish
You can make your own liquid suspension of Doxycyclene and syringe feed it to a sick cat, heres how:
Take one 100mg capsule of Doxycyclene and mix it with 9ccs of milk shake well, store in the fridge in a un used pill bottle with a cap on it, this will stay good for 30 days only, discard after 30 days.
Doxycyclene Cat Dose Amounts are as follows:
2-4 lb cat dose at a .5 which is 5 tenths of a cc which is 1/2 of a 1cc twice a day for 7-10 days.
5-7 lb cat dose at 1cc twice a day for 7-10 days.
8-10 lb cat dose at 1.5ml which is 1 and a 1/2 cc's twice a day for 7-10 days.
11-15 lb cat dose at 2.0ml which is 2cc's twice a day for 7-10 days.
And remember ml = cc's but if your still confused please email me & I will help you to figure it out.
Fish Flex (Cephalexin) which is also Keflex
Take 500mg capsule of fish flex, and mix into 1 gallon of water mix well and use as your cats only water source for 7-10 days, this stuff is an excellent broad spectrum antibiotic, great for URI, UTI, and open wounds, basically good for just about any bacterial infection in cats and great for multi cat households where they have come down with something at once.
Pet Armor is just like Frontline and you can save alot of money treating your cats with it !
If you do Rescue then you have a multi cat household,
Buy Pet Armor for Extra Large Dogs, Not the PLUS kind, cost is $25 Dollars a box
Dose your adult cats at a .3 between the shoulder blades, this dose amount is 3 tenths of a cc
Do Not Use on Kittens!!
There are now 2 kinds of Pet Armor, Pet Armor PLUS, & Pet Armor Regular;
You can use the PLUS kind of Pet Armor but it really does not work any better then the non plus kind, and it cost $28 a box, it has the exact same ingredients as the non plus kind, with the exception of the PLUS Pet Armor having an IGA in it, this IGA only stops fleas from being able to lay eggs on your pet the .3 dose amount for using this PLUS kind is the same dose you would use on your cats if you bought the non PLUS Pet Armor.
I have used Pet Armor PLUS and the regular Pet Armor at a .3 dose amount safely on my cats, but why pay $28 a box, when you can pay just $25 a box ? I really saw no advantages to purchasing the Pet Armor Plus.
One box of Pet Armor for Extra Large Dogs will do 36 cats! SAFELY!
Try it and save $$$$ Today!!!
Purchase at any Walmart near you !!
Pet Armor kills fleas, Ticks, & Chewing Lice
Works just like Frontline only its MUCH cheaper !
THIS JUST IN, .....BEWARE ...
THE PET ARMOR MADE FOR CATS HAS BEEN GIVING CATS VERY BAD SIDE EFFECTS!!!
ONE LADY SAID HER CAT ALMOST DIED FROM HER USING IT!
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT USING THE PET ARMOR FOR DOGS ON A CAT, THIS WARNING IS ONLY FOR USING PET ARMOR FOR CATS ON CATS!
Upper Respiratory, Colds, Sinus, broad spectrum infections
For Upper Respiratory or a URI cats need a decongestant just like humans do,
there are a couple of things you can do to unclog your cats noses & chest.
Decongestant: You can give your cat the liquid Robetussin for chest congestion
Dose is: .1 using a 1cc syringe not an insulin syringe, dose once daily.
Robetussin has guaifenesin in it this is a expectorant and decongestant.
This will help to clear out all of the bad congestion and will help to promote healing.
if using a 3cc syringe, from the tip the first tiny line on the syringe would be a .1
You can also give your cat a sqirt of ANY adult nasal spray to help clear stuffy noses.
Just do not use ANY nasal spray that has Menthol in it.
Also, you can take an insulin 1cc syringe and fill it up
with warm salt water, place tiny drops in cats nose twice a day.
This will clear a sinus problem FAST! Note: When the cat sneezes out blood from the nose this is normal and a sign that the sinus infection is clearing up, so dont panic if you see blood in your cats nose after they sneeze.
You will also need some broad spectrum antibiotics
for your cat if your cats nasal or chest problems turn into a URI
(Upper Respiratory Infection)
The most widely used is Clavamox, you can buy this here: 1 Drug
1drug.com sells clavamox in the pill form & the liquid form.
When you enter their site just click on PET MEDS or type in Clavamox in their search box.
Dosage: liquid form using a 3cc syringe draw up 1cc of liquid clavamox, give twice a day for a 5-10 lb cat
for a kitten 1/2 a cc of clavamox twice a day.
Dosage: Pill form: cut in half one clavamox 125mg tablet, then give 1/2 of that to an adult cat twice a day.
So you will be giving your cat 62.5mg by cutting this pill in half & giving it twice a day.
Note: Do not give kittens the pill form of clavamox give only the liquid form to kittens.
This is because kittens have problems swallowing pills, so the liquid is much easier for a kitten.
Clavamox is the very best broad spectrum antibiotic around!
It can be used to cure just about any type of infection in a cat or dog.
Another great site to buy Antibiotics from is:
Fleas, Flea Eggs. Also Eyes & Ear Problems
For Fleas For your CAT buy the Advandage 100 for extra large dogs

Take a 1cc syringe and fill it up with advantage to .4
You can buy the 1cc syringes here: IMed
Then squirt in the middle of the cats shoulder blades once a month.
The ingredients are the same for dogs & cats so buying the advantage 100 for dogs is just simply giving you more for your money.
Dead Fleaz has the REAL stuff! & its cheap! Buy Advantage 100 for Extra Large Dogs Here: deadfleaz.com
Dosage: For cats 5 - 10 lbs .4 from a 1cc syringe. For cats over 10 lbs Dose at a .8 from a 1cc syringe.
