One dose of Strongid enough for cats?
I took one of my cats to the vet recently for his yearly shots/exam, and unfortunately he had roundworms.
Now I'm very used to the one squirt now, one squirt in two weeks application of Strongid, so I was surprised when the vet said, "No, studies have shown that cats only need one dose. Dogs need two, but cats don't." They gave my cat Strongid in the office--it looked like maybe a larger dose than I'm used to seeing--and then they sent me home with two months' worth of Revolution as part of the treatment.
Is this standard practice nowadays? It just freaked me out a little because I've never been to that vet before and I've never NOT had to administer the second dose of wormer.
Just want a little external validation that this vet isn't a wacko!
