What Does Deworming Do?

Deworming a pet involves treating him with a medication that gets rid of the worms. Pets that have worms can lose weight, experience gastrointestinal issues such as vomiting or diarrhea, and generally just not feel well. It can be important that you treat his condition to help prevent his condition from worsening. Because some types of worms can spread to other pets, deworming can be important not just for your pet but for others as well.

How Do Pet Parasites Occur?

Parasites like worms can come into contact with your pet in several ways. They can be transmitted through close contact with another infected animal, through the bite of an infected insect like a mosquito or flea, and sometimes through contact with contaminated water. There are several preventative treatments for different kinds of worms and it's a good idea to give them to your pet.

Working with a Veterinarian Is the Right Choice

Our veterinarian can help you treat and prevent as many pet parasites and worms as possible. If your pet keeps getting a particular type of worm, it might also be important to work with your vet to find the potential cause so it can be avoided. Then your pet won't have to worry about deworming and neither will you. We can also help answer your deworming and pet parasite questions, so you're more prepared to tackle any issues that arise.
