Are you worming your pet regularly enough??
Even healthy-looking pets can have worms and there won’t always be obvious signs of this. This is why it is so important to keep up a regular worming routine so that your pet is not affected by worms at any stage. Symptoms can include, worms in your pet’s faeces or vomit, weight loss, increased appetite, diarrhoea, dry and coarse looking fur and weakness. Puppies and kittens with a severe infection can also have a ‘pot belly’.
A good worming routine won’t just protect your pet against the dangers of worms. Some worms can be passed onto humans and can lead to health problems, including blindness.
You should be looking to worm your pet at least every few months. For pets that spend a lot of time outdoors and cats that hunt mice and birds, it can be a good idea to worm them a bit more regularly as they are at a higher risk of picking up worms.
