Intestinal worms are relatively common in many animal species including dogs, cats, rabbits, large animals, fish, reptiles and birds.
Regular deworming is necessary to ensure your pets remain healthy and to reduce the risk of infection to people. Intestinal worms are often spread by faeces, so can be picked up anywhere from the backyard to the dog park. These worms can cause serious illness including gastrointestinal disease, malnutrition and anaemia.
Some most common worms affecting pets and humans are Round worm, Tape worm, Whip worm and Hook worm. Usually, deworming is easily done with a simple tablet. Contact Griffith Vet Hospital to find out about the different and most effective worming treatment options available.
