@Iwanna Sphynx our babies were only dewormed as kittens and never again. Chemicals can be harsh on their naked skin, so I would speak to your vet about flea concerns.

I agree with @Catzzzmeow. I don't do flea prevention or deworming with my sphynx. I know some flea protection will burn your kitties skin. So be careful. You can always submit a fecal sample to your vet if your concerned about worms.
