Accidental mating may cause your cat pregnant. If you want to worm your cat during pregnancy, you should be very careful. Some of the drugs are not at all adviced to use during pregnancy.

Drontal is a prominent wormer used for pets. It contains Praziquantel and pyrantel. This is safe for cats as it contains no drug that causes abortion in the pregnant cats.
