Deworming of Bengal

Deworming of Bengal

Our kittens are dewormed every 2 weeks with Panacur paste. This guarantees 100% removal of all parasites that may be present with the mother's milk or else. The kittens go guaranteed parasite-free to their new home.

A deworming treatment is recommended four times a year, even for Bengals who live in the apartment.

Feline Leukemia and FIV

We have tested all of our breeding cats and they are negative feline leukemia and FIV. They have no contact with cats from the outside; therefore all our kittens are negative for feline leukemia and FIV

Vaccinations of Bengals

The kittens are vaccinated by us at the age of  8 and 12 weeks against cat's flu and Panleukopenia. Then the new owner can fresh up this vaccination every year. Your vet will advise you. At every vet visit, the vaccination booklet that we deliver with the kitten shall be brought along. Leukemia vaccination is recommended for cats that walk outside and can be bitten by other cats. For cats that should travel abroad, additional rabies vaccination is necessary.

Giardia, Coccidiosis and Tritrichomonas

These single-celled organisms can be very persistent in a breeding and cause diarrhoea in kittens. In our cattery we make regular collective tests and deworm according to strict schedule with Panacur paste and Flagyl, so that our cattery is free of Giardia, Coccidiosis and Tritrichomonas.


The most common parasites are removed with the recommended regular deworming. We want to be sure there is nothing wrong and start to deworm the young kittens at the age of 2 weeks with  Panacur paste and continue every two weeks till the kittens leave in their new home. Later it is recommended for the new owner to deworm his cat four times a year, even if the cat lives in an apartment

Pyruvate kinase deficiency (PK deficiency)

Pyruvate kinase deficiency (PK deficiency)

We have tested all our breeding cats on PK-deficiency and the result is N/N, which means they have no gene of the disease, thus all of them are  suited for further breeding.


Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy HCM

HCM is a thickening of the walls of the heart, which can lead to death. Also other cats than the Bengal can be affected and it can also be found in humans.

Every serious breeder has his breeding cats periodically checked by ultra sound on HCM and should some first thickening of the walls of the heart be noticed, he takes the animals immediately from his breeding program. We are very pleased that all the HCM tests that we had done at Kleintierspital in Zürich for our breeders every year have been negative.
