Worming is one of the first health issues pet owners need to address. Young animals are very susceptible to worm problems. Intestinal worms are parasites that live in the intestines of your pet. These worms can grow up to 18cm long and can be deadly to your pet. They can also be responsible for health issues in humans.
Maintaining a routine worming treatment for your pets is crucial. It reduces the incidence of infection, environmental contamination and the risk of people becoming infected.
There are many worming treatments available for the various infections that occur in our pets. They are available as tablets, spot-ons, or pastes. Re-infection is a common problem, particularly in pets that are in contact with a heavily contaminated environment.
At Darwin Vets we can assist you in following a worming treatment which will be most effective for your pet.
