Newborn animals are often infected with worms when they are born and so worming them is important from the outset. Adult animals can then be infected with worms throughout their life and may not outwardly show signs of infestation such as loss of condition. Some of the worms that infect animals can also infect people, including unborn babies, and can potentially cause serious illness. These are all reasons why it is strongly recommended to regularly worm your pet. We stock a wide range of worming treatments and are happy to offer further information and advice on worming your pet. There are also specific worming recommendations for pets travelling abroad which we can advise you on (see Pet Travel Scheme).
Ideally your pet should be wormed every 3 months – frequency of worming can depend on a pet’s age and other environmental factors – we will be happy to advise on the best course of action for your pet.
