How often should you worm a dog
Hi there,Thank you for your question regarding your McVities and how often to give her a deworming treatment. For adult dogs with no signs of an intestinal worm burden, you need to be giving a deworming treatment every 3 months. Dogs commonly get roundworm, hookworm and tapeworm, so you will need to use a reliable allwormer that kills all of these intestinal worms. The lifecycle of these worms is the reason for this 3 monthly deworming requirement. There are a number of excellent all-wormers you can use for this including Drontal, Milbemax and Pancur. All of these are available over the counter from your local vet clinic, and some - such as Milbemax - are flavoured tables, so very easy to give. I hope all of the above makes sense? If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!

I hope to work with you again soon!Kind Regards,Dr EPS: If you have additional questions after you rate the question, you are welcome to request me for additional conversations if I am on-line or by beginning your question "Dr. E..." or "Pet-doc..." and others will leave the questions for me.
