How often should I deworm

How does a wormer cure work?

Worming cures for dogs contain active ingredients that fight all stages of a worm. They are supposed to prevent the formation of sexually mature, egg-laying worms.

Some wormers only aim to kill a specific type of worm. Others, on the other hand, act in a broad spectrum and simultaneously fight tapeworms and roundworms. Your vet will decide which type of wormer is appropriate in each individual case.

Administering the preparations

If you want to dewormer your dog, you have several options. On the one hand there are tablets, pastes and liquid worming treatments. They are either given directly into the dog's mouth or into the dog's food. With some preparations a single dose is sufficient, others have to be administered for several days in a row.

On the other hand, there is the so-called “spot-on procedure” for stubborn objectors. The de-wormer is then applied to the skin between the dog's shoulder blades. This method also works very reliably.

The dosage of the cure depends on the dog's body weight. Worming treatments are now very well tolerated. They are suitable for dogs of all races, of all ages and can even be safely used on pregnant and lactating animals.
