Worming

Worms can affect cats and dogs: round worms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms.

Puppies and kittens are mainly affected by roundworms. Worming should be done every 2 weeks from weaning to 12 weeks, then monthly to 6 months, then every 3-6 months depending on the environment of the animal.

Adult cats and dogs should be wormed on a regular basis. We recommend at the very least once a year worming. Worming should be done at more frequent intervals i.e. up to four times per year for animals that show signs of worms, for cats that regularly hunt and for dogs that scavenge, and particularly where your pets come into contact with young children.

Our staff can also advise on parasite treatments for rabbits, small ‘furries’, tortoises and birds etc.
