Maintain an effective worm control programme, with pets being wormed from a young age. The medicines we use to treat/prevent worm infestations are used to treat a wide variety of worms. Prevention is available in different formations (tablet, oral pastes/powders, spot-ons and liquid oral solutions) to make administration easy for you as an owner.
Prevent tapeworms by using a flea treatment regularly, as fleas can carry tapeworm eggs.
Disinfect food and water bowls regularly. You should also ensure your pet’s housing is regularly cleaned and disinfected. Only use a disinfectant that is safe for animals.
Wash your hands thoroughly before you eat.
Pregnant animals should only be wormed under the supervision of a vet as some products will not be suitable for them.
Dogs & Cats: Every 3 months.
Puppies and Kittens: Every 2 weeks until they are 12 weeks old, then once a month until 6 months, then every 3 months thereafter.
