How to worm your pet

deworming image

Regular worming will keep your pet parasite-free. And your children safe. Cats and dogs pick up worms from their mothers, other pets, ingesting slugs and snails and by coming into contact with the faeces of other animals. We offer many kitten insurance policies and puppy insurance policies that include vouchers for worm treatment.

What are the different types of Worms Pet Owners should be aware of?

There are several types of worms including roundworm, tapeworm, whipworm and hookworm. All these will cause disease ranging from weight loss to severe life-threatening diarrhoea. Roundworm and some types of tapeworm can be passed on to people, particularly children, and can cause disease and blindness.

Speak to your vet about the worming treatments they recommend – most will suggest worming at least every 3 months. The most effective and safest worming drugs are only available from veterinary surgeries – further, many spot-on flea products available from vets are also effective against round worms making all round treatment easier and more convenient. Remember, with Vetsure Cover & Care, you get £15 off your flea and wormer products every 3 months.
