Protect your pet from deadly parasites by deworming them regularly.
Worms can be fatal for your loyal companion. To give your pet protection, veterinarians recommend regular deworming. Deworming is the process of removing internal and external worms from your pet's body. Your pet can get worms from hunting other animals, eating insects, their mother's milk while nursing, or eating worm eggs when playing in grass or contaminated soil. When your pet is dewormed, they are protected from heartworms, hookworms, whipworms, roundworms, and tapeworms. By deworming your pet, you eliminate the possibility of your pet passing them on to you. To learn more about deworming for your pet, reach out to us today at 250-376-6797.
Deworming needs to happen every year for all pets. Younger companions need to start deworming between the ages of 2 to 4-weeks-old. Kittens and puppies have weaker immune systems and can get worms from their mothers. Deworming should continue every two weeks until your pet is 3-months-old. As an adult, your pet can begin to take monthly preventative medication.
The following symptoms are commonly seen when pets have worms:
Deworming medication can be in the form of topical creams or oral tablets. Based on your pet's needs, we will create a routine that works best for them. If your pet has a severe worm infestation, your veterinarian may recommend surgery to remove them.
