It’s important to keep your puppies on a de-worming schedule. Your puppy has been dewormed every 2 weeks since birth and will need to follow a deworming schedule after your puppy goes home.
Hookworms and roundworms are by far the most common intestinal worms found in puppies and kittens. Roundworms compete with your pet for food, while hookworms live on blood, causing anemia.
Rough hair coats, diarrhea, malnutrition progressing to intestinal obstruction, and anemia are common issues with worms. We want to feed our pets – not the parasites. That is why we deworm dogs and cats. Don’t wait until you are sure your pet has parasites because they have already caused damage at this point.
