There are four main types of worms that we are concerned with in our pets. They are Roundworms, Hookworms, Whipworms and Tapeworms. Round worms and Hook worms are both considered zoonotic. This means they can potentially affect us, and especially small children. Worming your pet is therefore really important throughout their life for their own protection and your families.
The worming Protocols sometimes vary depending on what product you use. If you are planning to use an Intestinal Allwormer than the program we recommend is:
- worming starts every fortnight from 2 weeks of age until 3 months of age,
- then worm every month until 6 months old,
- then every 3 months for life
- Note: Pregnant bitches should be treated 10 days before whelping and again 10 days after whelping.
