Why dogs need de-worming routine?
The presence of intestinal worms can have dire consequences on a dog’s health. Intestinal worms cause protein loss, anemia and prevent nutrients from being absorbed. It can also lead to an apparent loss in your dog’s weight. Other symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting and coughing.
To prevent your dog from being infected by parasites such as tape worms, round worms, hook worms and whip worms, follow a regular de-worming schedule.
Which de-worming pills are best for your dog?
You can shop broad spectrum medications that can target as well as prevent both hookworms and round worms or select from dog de-worming pills to specifically tackle tape worms. As a thumb rule, most pills available are formulated in a way that 1 pill is required for every 10kgs of dog weight. However don’t try self medication in this case and always consult a professional before starting the de worming routine.
When to start de-worming a Puppy?
Most veterinarians recommend de-worming a pup as early as 2 to 3 weeks old. Worms enter a puppy from its mother either before or immediately after birth through her milk. A doctor will administer more than one dose. The first dose attacks the worms that are already present in the puppy’s body. The second round kills the ones that hatch after a couple of weeks.
Pests such as mosquitoes and fleas also carry these worms that are a threat to your pet. Pet parents must take their dog to a vet for annual checkups that help in detecting the presence of worms. Visits to your trusted veterinarian must be as regular as four times a year.
