We at Medivet recommend regularly worming all cats and dogs, preferably every 3 months, but this can be adapted to suit each individual pet’s needs. Puppies and kittens – who tend to eat all sorts of odd things they shouldn’t! – should be wormed monthly.
Watch our video below to understand why worming is important for your pet.
Pets can be infected by a variety of worms in a variety of ways; contact with another animal’s excretion, catching small prey such as mice and birds, and flea infestations can all result in your pet contracting worms. Puppies and kittens can also become infected whilst they are still inside their mother’s womb and through the milk produced by their mothers.
A worm infestation can make your pet seriously unwell and can even prove fatal in some cases. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing and a pot belly depending on the type of infestation.
We use modern broad-spectrum wormers which effectively destroy all the species of worms commonly encountered by your pet. Our preferred wormers are also safe to use and do not produce significant side effects. The range of wormers available is constantly evolving and we evaluate each new product on its merits and will recommend the most suitable product for your pet and your circumstances.
Please discuss your pet's worming requirements with us as often as you wish – we would be delighted to assess your pet’s requirements whenever necessary.
