Intestinal worms can cause many healthy issues for your pet, however some intestinal worms can be transmitted to humans. The overall incidence of these zoonoses is low, however to safeguard your family’s health it is important to take appropriate preventative measures.
We recommend treating puppies & kittens fortnightly until 12 weeks of age, then monthly until 6 months of age, then every three months for life.
There are many parasite prevention products available, from liquid spot-on treatments, to oral chewable treatments, to a year-long Heartworm Prevention injection. They are all effective, but your pet’s preventative program is tailored specifically to your pet’s lifestyle and needs.
