FAQs for Fleas & Worming your Pets

How often should I worm my puppy/kitten?

Both puppies and kittens can have worms passed to them from their mum. Many of these worms will lie dormant in the lining of the intestine and hatch periodically. We recommend worming every two weeks.

How often should I worm my animal?

Most wormers are excreted from the body within three days. None of the wormer’s currently on the market provide long term protection and we recommend worming monthly.

What is the best flea treatment?

There are many good flea treatments on the market, but it is vitally important that you spray your house and animals’ bedding with a good insecticide designed to eliminate flea larvae.

Can I get flea and worming from non-veterinary suppliers?

Yes, many of the pharmacies provide these treatments however, we would advise caution here as safety of all treatments are based on healthy animals and suitability for your animal should always be checked with your veterinary surgeon.
