Worming

All animals are at risk from acquiring worm infections however some animals will be at

higher risk than others depending on factors such as your lifestyle and area in which you live.


Children are at increased risk of disease from worms; if you have a young family or your pets often come into contact with children, you should pay particular attention to regularly worming your pets.

.

All animals are recommended to be wormed a minimum of every 3 months,

however there are some situations where we recommend worming more frequently:

PUPPIES AND KITTENS  HUNTING CATS  SCAVENGING DOGS 
ANIMALS REGULARLY COMING INTO CONTACT WITH CHILDREN 

FARM DOGS, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN WALES AND THE HEBRIDES 

ANIMALS THAT ARE NOT REGULARLY FLEA TREATED  PETS TRAVELLING ABROAD 

We recommend:
 

Worm your cat or dog at least every 3 months  Use a quality wormer broad spectrum wormer  Treat puppies monthly until 6 months old  Scavengers may need more frequent treatment  Spot on treatments are available for difficult cats.
