Worming is necessary to prevent intestinal parasites, such as roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm in dogs and cats, and whipworm in dogs. Heartworm prevention is easy and convenient, requiring only a yearly injection for dogs, or monthly or spot-on treatments for dogs and cats.
If your pet has never had treatment or has been off heartworm prevention for three months, please talk to your vet about a simple heartworm test before starting treatment.
If you are getting a new puppy or kitten, it is vital to check that they have been wormed, as a large worm burden can be fatal, or transmitted to humans (particularly young children).
We recommend worming at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks, then monthly until 6 months, then every 3 months as an adult to help keep all the family protected.
