Hi Gloria,

To be honest. I am not sure either on using either of the wormers you mentioned on a cat. As Karen said, cats are rather unique and giving them the wrong thing could prove fatal.

I did find this info though:
Q: Besides neutering and ear-tipping, what other procedures or care is recommended?
A. All cats should receive the following: FVRCP vaccination Rabies vaccination Ivomec 0.1 ml/cat SQ (this dosage treats ear mites, round and hook worms) Procaine Penicillin G (single injection SQ or IM) Cats that are pregnant or dehydrated should also receive 150 ml SQ fluids.

This was located at:

What I have seen used the most for cats is Piperazine 17 which is the "base" and active ingredient of all of the over the counter wormers such as Hartz.

Hope this helps. Best regards,
