Even pets which are in the greatest of health can become infested with worms, this can lead to some dire consequences for your beloved pet. Worms are also not the easiest thing to notice, you will need to keep a close eye on your pet and react to any changes in their behaviour. Your pet losing their appetite and worms being noticeable in their stool are obvious signs. Worms can also be linked to fleas, with fleas greatly increasing the risk of a tapeworm infection. Pets can accidently ingest fleas infected with tapeworm eggs while they are biting, scratching or grooming themselves, this can cause a case of intestinal worms in your pet, which can be very serious and even fatal. Certain types of worms may also be able to infect people so you need to be particularly cautious.
Pet wormers can work very effectively but it is not a one-time thing, it may be beneficial to put in place a worming program as well as flea treatments to prevent your pets picking up worms this way. Modern pet wormers come in a variety or flavours and sizes, meaning dosing your pet is easy and effective to achieve.
