Dog Worming

Worming

We will recommend worming your new puppy at their primary vaccination appointments and will give you information then about future worming protocols. As a general rule we will worm pups again at their 6 month puppy check and then advise worming every 3 months from then on.

Most puppies are born with a roundworm infestation which they get from their mothers. Rarely these worms can pass to humans with potentially devastating effects (especially young children). It is therefore of paramount importance that puppies are wormed regularly as well as basic hygiene employed at home such as always washing hands after playing with your puppy and before eating.

There are many different types of worms with different life cycles and a varied range of preparations available to treat them with - we will provide you with all the necessary information to ensure both you and your pet are protected.
