Pet Worming Treatment

Worms are parasites found within the gut of your pet.

Roundworms look like pieces of string, Tapeworms are long and flat with segments, which look like grains of rice and are mobile.

They can occasionally be seen on the hair around the bottom. Worm eggs remain infective in the environment for years.

Symptoms Of Worms

Heavy infestations can result in vomiting and severe diarrhoea and cause a loss of blood, weight and condition.

Worms weaken the immune system, and by moving through major organs can cause other illnesses such as pneumonia. Whilst pets with less severe infestations may show no external signs, they are still a possible source of infection to others, including humans.

Preventing Worms

Regular administration of worming treatments can help prevent worms in your pet. These can be in the form of spot-on treatments or tablets. Dosage will vary dependent on the weight of your cat or dog.

A worming consultation with your vet can help develop the best worming protocol for your pet (including frequency and dosage).
