General Comments and Notes from Other Protocols for KITTENS in foster:

Start FVRCP at 6 weeks and give every 3-4 weeks until 18-20 weeks

Pyrantel Pamoate upon intake (4 weeks or older), then again every two weeks for three doses total

Ponazuril upon intake (4 weeks or older) and then again 1-2 weeks later 

Selamectin/Revolution at 4 weeks or older

Praziquantel at 6 weeks then 2 weeks later

*Panacur is not used regularly in the protocols I found BUT can be used for 5 days if giardia is suspected or when loose stools aren’t firming up despite probiotics, etc.
