That’s why YourCatCareguide has prepared this article for you to know how to make a homemade dewormer for cats , more precisely a homemade pipette . Let us explain how to prepare, how to apply and how long it is effective.
Are deworming good for cats?
The antiparasitic are a basic and essential product for the health of cats, especially for those who have access to the outside , since they are more exposed to possible infestation of fleas or ticks, for example. Although commercial options are the most advised option for veterinarians, there are alternatives. It is important to remember that studies are carried out regularly to confirm the efficacy of antiparasitics and the different brands are adapting their products to the new resistances of the parasites.
When applying the pipette, especially if the cat already has fleas, you should follow a series of rules, such as bathing the cat . Have you ever wondered why? It is not simply to clean the cat, the bath also helps to eliminate the parasites. However, it is not an easy task, especially if the cat is not used to it.
Despite the benefits of commercial pipettes and the numerous advantages over home pipettes, they have some drawbacks. The industrial pipettes are made of chemicals that can be harmful to the health of the animal and of those around you (for example, some animals suffer poisoning after being administered the pipette because lick and ingest the product). The same is true for children who play with cats after pipetting, touching the product with their hands, licking their own fingers by ingesting the toxic components.
What do we need to do the homemade pipette?
You should try to get all the ingredients you need from herbalists, agroecological crops or growers who do not use pesticides or chemicals in crops.
- Oil of neem (neem) or of Amargosa
- Citronella or citronella oil
- Eucalyptus Oil
- Mint Oil Tea Tree Oil
- Hypertonic (or natural) sea water or saline
All of the aforementioned products, other than sea water, may be purchased in bottles of 50 ml (most indicated) or in bottles of 10 or 20 ml. Prices vary by bottle size, but are generally very economical.
To prepare seawater follow these instructions:
- Go to the sea to collect water
- Leave to decant for 24 hours
- Pass the water through a coffee filter
Another possible option is to buy sea water and convert to isotonic in a ratio of 3: 1.
You will need to purchase a 2 ml syringe (without a needle) to apply the solution and a 10 ml caramel color bottle to make the mixture and store the preparation for some time. This way, you will not have to prepare the solution whenever you want to wipe the cat.
Preparation of the pipette
As we mentioned before, we can prepare the solution in the bottle and store for 2 months . You should repeat the application once a month. We will do the calculations for 10 ml:
- Isotonic sea water or serum (65%) = 6.5ml
- Peppermint oil or tea tree (10%) = 1 ml
- Eucalyptus oil (10%) = 1 ml
- Citronella or citronella oil (10%) = 1ml
- Neem oil (Nim) or bituminous oil (5%) = 0.5 ml
You will have prepared 10 ml of product, of which you should apply 1.5 ml per month on each cat. Do not forget to handle the bottle very carefully and always use a clean syringe to avoid contaminating the product.
How, when and where to apply?
To get a good result, you should apply the pipette correctly: Ideally you should start bathing in the feline and after a day or two, apply the pipette.
Regarding the dose, it is important to note that for cats weighing less than 10 kg you should use 1.5 ml of product per month. In case the cat is over 10 kg, you should use about 2 ml. This dose is not a general rule, so it is recommended that you consult your Natural Medicine Veterinarian.
The best areas to apply are the neck area , between the two shoulder blades (half the amount) and the hip area , a few centimeters from the beginning of the tail (the other half). Some people prefer to place the entire product in the neck area.
By following this simple process, even with few features, you will be able to keep the parasites away from the kittens in a natural and safe way.
