Worms affect pets and humans
Worms affect the health of your pet, but can also transmit to people, especially young children. Worms can cause serious and permanent illness in humans which can be avoided by regular worm prevention. It is essential to commence a worm control program from the moment you take home your new pet.
The intestinal worms that we recommend control in pets are roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms. If you have a new pet or your adult pet hasn’t received a worming treatment in the past 3 months, please contact us at the Veterinary Hospital.
