Customer Question

My cat has worms coming out of his butt. I gave him an over the counter dewormer as I cannot afford a vet bill right now but I'm wondering if I gave him the right kind
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations cats can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** he's a year and half
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Piglet?
Customer: He was a feral cat I started feeding as a kitten along with the rest of the litter. The others disappeared so I brought him in
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: I also have another cat should I treat him as well? I am treating them both for their fleas
