I found a couple days old kitty three weeks ago and i have been feeding it and keeping it warm. It was 77 grams when i found it and it is now only 103 grams. I saw some worms today, i think they are roundworm (spaghetti like, coming out with the poo). There are no vets where i live but i could go 3 hours away and see one, but i need to know first if the kitten (her name is Trooper) is old and big enough for any kind of treatment/medicine. I don't want to make her travel if she doesn't have to and, i do have access to pet medicine here so i just need to know what to give her or what to do. She is such a sorry little thing and i really want her to make it and grow up! Thank you.

3 weeks is pretty young...we don't deworm until 6-8 weeks. But being all filled with worms can't be good for her either! Poor thing...I would definitely talk to a vet.
