I have just discovered that my two kittens have worms this Friday. We are sopose to take them to the vet this week. Since I found out Friday, will they be alright if i have to wait a couple days to take them to the vet?

thank you

That will be fine. Worms are not an emergency, but do need to be gotten rid of as they steal nutrients from kittens, especially if there are large numbers of them.

Take a stool sample to be analyzed, as sometimes there are more than one kind of worm and some cannot be seen outside the body.
