Worms In Dogs

If you have just brought home a new puppy or an adopted an older dog, it is recommended that your new pet undergo a wellness check at the vet’s. Worms are very common in dogs and puppies, with their still-developing immune system, tend to be especially vulnerable to the effects of these parasites. The most common are roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms. Puppies are dewormed more frequently than adults. The usual deworming schedule starts when they are 2 weeks of age, and every 2 weeks until the puppies are about 12 weeks old. After this period, deworming is done every month until the puppies are 6 months old. After 6 months old, worming medication is given every 3 months.

In addition to safeguarding your pet’s health and wellbeing, regular deworming is very important because there are some types of parasites that humans can get from their pets. It is recommended that you consult with your veterinarian Lafayette, LA if you have questions and/or concerns about your pet’s deworming schedule.
