Worming your Dog
Once pets start to go outside then worm infection can be picked up from the ground. Routine worming is advisable every 3 – 6 months. Infection being passed onto others and possibly even to children playing in proximity can be considerably reduced if responsible dog owners pick up and dispose of stools along with having their dog regularly treated.
Fleas are the most usual source of tape worm infection. If fleas are found then measures for their control must be taken as well as appropriate worming.
