Caring for a Three Week Old Orphan Kitten

I have an orphaned kitten who is 3 weeks old. Our veterinarian has just administered a deworming agent. Will she be able to drink her formula milk immediately after being dewormed?

I think you should be asking her veterinarian these questions (both this one about formula after de-worming, and the other question about what to give to help with rehydration). Give the vet's office a call, and see if they can give you some advice over the phone. Best of luck with your kitten. I hope she's feeling better soon!

Yes, she will be able to drink her formula but she shouldn't have been dewormed at three weeks! I'm in the U.S. but don't know of any product that can be used on such a young kitten. Keep an eye on her as this may be a bit of a shock to her system at such a young age.
