Worming Your Dog

Puppies

Puppies need to be treated for roundworms.

They become infested with these worms from their mothers, who excrete them in their milk. The breeder should have already started your puppies worming programme.

Recommended Treatment Regime

Using Panacur granules or paste wormer every month until your puppy is six months old.

Adult Dogs

All adult dogs should be treated against roundworm and tapeworm at least every six months, whether or not there are obvious signs. Low grade infestations of roundworms can contaminate the environment with their long lived eggs. Any infestation with one or more of the different types needs to be eliminated.

Recommended Treatment Regime

Drontal Plus tablets contain the most effective combination of drug to kill both round and tapeworm infestation with one dose.

Panacur granules or paste may be used, especially for dogs who are difficult to administer tablets to. Droncit injections can also be given to treat tapeworm infestation in dogs.

Pregnant Bitches

The aim is to eliminate transfer of roundworms from mother to pups producing a virtually worm free litter and giving them a better start in life.

Recommended Treatment Regime

Panacur granules, given from day 42 of pregnancy to 2 days after whelping.

All products mentioned are available from the surgery.
