Deworming Services for Pets

Deworming will help prevent your pet from getting several types of internal and external parasites, which can damage their digestive health and stunt their growth. But, did you know that deworming protects even yourself and the other human members of your family? That’s right – people can get worms from their cats and dogs. Fortunately, regular deworming is a simple measure against the damaging effects of these parasites. To learn more about deworming, please call us at 705.742.4243.

What are signs that my pet has worms?

Laboured breathing, vomiting, constipation, bloated stomach, persistent coughing, bloody stool, and visible worms or worm parts in their stool are all symptoms that your pet is suffering from parasitic worms. We ask that you reach out to our team immediately if you see any of these signs in your furry family member.

Are worms dangerous to humans?

Unfortunately, yes. Parasitic worms can thrive in your intestines for a long time. They can cause serious health problems. Anemia, fatigue, weight loss and abdominal pain are just some of the issues that you can experience once you have worms.

How often should I deworm my pet?

Our veterinary team recommends that kittens and puppies are dewormed once every 2 weeks until they are 3-months-old. Then, they are usually dewormed when they reach 4 months, 6 months and then when they are 12-months-old. When fully grown, dogs and cats should be dewormed about 2 times per year. More or less deworming may be needed depending on your pet’s unique lifestyle. Barn cats, for instance, may require more deworming than indoor cats.
