Deworming

  Back

Intestinal worms such as roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, and whipworms can make a home inside your pet and rob your animal of vital nutrients, leading to poor appetite, loss of energy, serious anaemia, and even death. Puppies and kittens are especially susceptible. Parasite infestation can be controlled and prevented. The current recommendation is that dogs and cats should be wormed every 3 months to prevent infestation. We recommend using a chewy tablet (Milbemax, Elanco), but more recently a spot-on has been made available for those more awkward cats (Broadline. Merial). They are simple and safe to use, with a single dose pipette of the wormer applied to the skin at the back of the neck.

Canine roundworms can be transmitted to humans. This is especially so in young children. Good hand hygiene and regular de-worming of your pet is essential to prevent this possibility.
