Worm Control

Tapeworms and roundworms are two of the most common intestinal parasites that dogs and cats can suffer with.


Roundworms are especially common in puppies and kittens. Roundworms can be passed on by contact with faeces, from infected dogs to their unborn puppies via the placenta, or through a mothers infected milk to her puppies/kittens.

They are extremely common and it is safe to assume that all kittens and puppies will be affected by roundworms.

Lung worm is a roundworm that is picked up by your pet eating slugs or snails and can be life threatening. this is not controlled by conventional worming but is completely controlled by the use of Advocate spot on parasiticide. Follow the link below to find more.

Tapeworms can affect both cats and dogs and are caught when pets eat fleas that are infected by tapeworms. Even if your pet does not have fleas, it can easily eat fleas from elsewhere. As flea infections are so common in cats and dogs, the tapeworm is also common.

Cats and dogs that actively hunt or scavenge can also easily pick up tapeworms.

It is also worth noting that, as humans can be affected by the dog roundworm, to prevent disease dog owners should:

  • worm dogs regularly
  • safely dispose of faeces
  • deny dogs access to play areas
  • be strict with personal hygiene
