Dog Worming tablets & Other effective treatments

It may not the most glamorous thing to buy your dog, but worming tablets are important. Dogs should receive regular worming treatments to kill any nasty parasites in their system. It’s a bit of a jungle out there, and unfortunately worms can cause more damage and discomfort than you think. It’s also crucial to worm your dog to protect you and your family from catching anything nasty.

Apparently, dogs can be infected with up to 12 different types of intestinal worms in the UK, which sounds pretty unpleasant. The problem with a lot of intestinal worms is that the symptoms aren’t that obvious, so they can go undiagnosed for some time.

There aren’t any tablets that can stop your dog getting worms, but regular treatments at least every three months can reduce the risk and will kill any that are present. You can get wormers from your vet, but it’s much cheaper to get them online.

Dog Wormers: Why You Need Them?

There always seems to be plenty to think about when it comes to owning a dog; feeding, walking, grooming and of course who will take care of them if we go on holiday. One thing that can so easily be forgotten is dog wormers. However, failure to regularly treat your dog for worms can lead to an infestation. In turn an infestation can cause health issues and discomfort to your pooch. With this in mind we have put together our guide on worms and how best to treat them. Just make sure that you pop the date of your dog’s last treatment in the calendar.

What are worms?

The worms that can infect your dog are entirely different to the variety you see wiggling around your garden. There are several species and they can be tricky to pick up on. Here are just some of the more common worms that can infest dogs.

Roundworms

Roundworms are often found in puppies as they are passed on through their mother’s milk. This is why it is important to treat an expectant and nursing mother to ensure that roundworms are not passed on to their young. They look like spaghetti and can be found in both faeces and vomit.

Tapeworms

Fleas are the main carriers of tapeworms; however, dogs can also become infected if they are exposed to the carcasses of animals.
As these worms are segmented they will look more like grains of rice than long strands when expelled in faeces.

Lungworm

Unlike some of the other types of worm, lungworms live in the blood vessels of your dog and will affect their lungs rather than their intestines.
They are usually picked up if your dog eats a slug or snail.

What are the types of dog wormers out there?

There are different types of dog worming treatments. Treatment may be in the form of tablets but can also be bought as pastes. It is best to speak to your vet before you start any worm treatment for your dog, just to make sure that you are using a suitable type.

Do worms pose a threat to me?

It may sound like a silly question, but you would be surprised how many owners are concerned about "catching" worms from their dogs. The truth is, worms can be transmitted to humans as well as from dog to dog. The best way to minimise the risk of transmission is to pick up and dispose of faeces. You should also ensure that your family wash their hands after stroking your pet. Worms are not something to keep you up at night but it is important to be aware of them and the available treatment options. That way you can ensure that you always have a happy and healthy pet!

How often should you worm your dog?

Your beloved canine’s health will always be a concern. Whilst the thought of worms is less than appealing, It is important to know how often you should worm your dog for your dog’s wellbeing and your own.

Why worming is important

The consequences of not worming your dog can be extreme. There are 2 main types of worms present in the UK. Left untreated, these can lead to a number of health conditions and in extreme circumstances, death. The main culprits are roundworms and tapeworms. Not only can these parasites infect your beloved canine, but they can also infect you.

How do I know if my dog has worms?

It is important to be aware that if your dog shows symptoms of worms, there is already an established infestation present. Worms can be tricky to pick up on. If you are concerned that your dog may have worms, then it is always best to speak to your vet and they can confirm the diagnosis. There are some signs to look out for, though.

Signs that your dog has worms include:

  • Loss of weight
  • Excessive hunger
  • Coughing is a symptom of lungworm
  • A dull coat
  • Loss of energy
  • Diarrhoea
  • Scooting their bottom along the ground
  • Vomiting
  • Having a pot belly
  • Visible signs of worms in vomit and faeces

If an infestation has taken hold, worms can easily be identified in your dog’s faeces. Round worms have a long and stingy appearance whereas tapeworms look like grains of rice, often seen joined together in long strands.

Where do they come from?

It is very easy for your dog to pick up worms. Infected dogs pass eggs in their faeces, which if not collected up for the bin, can get mixed in with the soil. Your dog can easily pick these up whilst playing or grooming. If your dog is let off the leash they can also become infected from eating dead animals that contain eggs and larvae. Birds, rodents and even farm animals can pose a threat. Fleas can also lead to a worm infestation. The eggs of some worms are ingested by fleas. Your dog can then become infected by accidentally eating the fleas, such as when grooming. Worms are especially dangerous for puppies. If your dog has recently had a litter and is feeding pups, worms can be passed via the milk directly to the puppies. These nasty parasite eggs can even be walked right into your home on the bottom of your shoes. It’s no wonder they are so widespread! If reading this is making your skin crawl, don’t worry! Worms are preventable. The best way to keep your dog safe from worms is through regular treatment.

Treatment Options

There are lots of options available giving you choices in how to worm your dog. The most common form of treatment is worming tablets, but spot-ons, pastes, granules, and liquids are also available. It is always best to discuss which option is best for your dog with your veterinarian. There are even combined dog wormers that will target multiple types of worms.

How Often?

The standard advice for puppies is to worm them at regular intervals, using a treatment which is suitable for puppies. Best practice is to treat at 2, 4, 6, 8, and finally at 12 weeks of age. Once they are older than 12 weeks of age, moving to a 3-monthly treatment schedule is advised. Of course, these timings may vary depending on the product you use, or other health conditions your dog may have, so it’s always best to consult with your veterinarian.

The best wormers for dogs

You need to select the appropriate tablets for the size of your dog, as large dogs need stronger doses. If your dog doesn’t swallow tablets very easily, you can get granules instead. We sell all major worming brands including Beaphar, Panacur and Drontal.

Getting medical supplies, preventative treatments and medicines for dogs online is fast, easy and cost effective.
