Pet Worming

Healthy looking animals can carry worms, so it’s important to worm your pet regularly.

Animals pick worms up in a variety of ways:

  • From other infected animals
  • From eating the larvae or eggs of worms (e.g. infected faeces or in grass)
  • From eating raw meat
  • From eating infected prey animals

Puppies/kittens need to be wormed every month until they are 6 months of age and then every 3- 6 months for the rest of their lives.

Signs your pet might have worms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Pot belly
  • Dull coat
  • Scooting
  • Diarrhoea

Pets may have no symptoms and still have a worm infection. They remain hidden in the gut and may not be visible in the animals faeces.

Treatments can be prescribed by your vet and will go off the weight of your animal. You can pop into the clinic anytime to weigh your pet.
