Deworming Services for Pets

Even for the most outdoorsy of us who are used to handling worms while fishing and gardening, there will always be a yuck factor when it comes to talking about worms. But, as pet owners, it’s important to keep them in our minds. Aside from being gross and slimy, intestinal worms can wreak serious havoc on your pet’s health. We can make sure your pet is worm-free and that if they do get worms, they receive the proper care they need. Contact us at 647.350.6666. to learn more.

How can I stop my pet from getting worms?

Preventative care is absolutely essential. Pets should receive deworming medication from puppy or kitten age. They should be given their deworming medication all year round, all their life. Dosing schedule may vary depending on the type of drug chosen and your pet’s unique situation. Routine wellness and fecal exams can also help us detect worms. Finally, there are things you can do to minimize their exposure to worms such as always keeping their bowls and toys clean, and stopping them from licking/touching dirty objects such as dead animals or animal feces.

What harm can worms do to my pet?

Intestinal worms can cause diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, dehydration, stunted growth and intestine blockages (which can be fatal). What’s more, there are certain worms pets can pass onto you and other humans in your household. For this reason, protecting your pets from worms will not only keep them safe, but also you, your loved ones and other members of your neighbourhood.
