There are many types of worms that can live in dogs, all of which are known as parasites because they feed off the dog instead of living on their own. The worm must get inside your dog to reproduce and the most common types are roundworms, whipworms, tapeworms and heartworms. Generally, dogs should be treated for roundworms and tapeworms every six months.

Puppies can be very susceptible to picking up worms, in particular roundworms and hookworms. Most puppies are actually born with worms, and it’s important that breeders worm puppies at 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 weeks old to rid them of the worms and keep them healthy. It’s important to weigh your puppies and provide them with the correct amount of worming treatment for their weight or you could end up under or overdosing them. From 12 weeks old it’s recommended to worm your puppy every 3-6 months for life. If you’re unsure which wormer is right for your puppy, get in touch with our trusted vet who can provide you with all the information you need.
Puppies can start receiving flea treatment from the age of 6-8 weeks with certain brands and it’s recommended to do it as soon as possible. Before this point, it’s recommended to use tick and flea combs or remove any fleas you see with tweezers. Fleas in adult dogs can generally be treated with a spot-on treatment, meaning the job is quick and easy and most treatments last 4-6 months. Flea sprays for your home are also available to stop the spread of fleas and reduce the chances of your dog picking them up again.
