Drontal  – A Guide to Worms in Dogs

Worms are parasites which live in the gastrointestinal tract and can have a negative impact on your dog’s health. Your dog will not always show obvious symptoms so it’s very important to make sure that he or she is regularly wormed to stay healthy.

There are various types of worms that could affect your dog but the most common culprits are roundworms and tapeworms.

Tapeworms: These worms are not well known for causing health problems in dogs but they are problematic as far as fleas are concerned. Tapeworms are involved in the life cycle of fleas. You may notice shedding that resembles grains of rice around your dog’s anus or in his or her faeces. This is a strong indication that your dog has contracted tapeworm.

Roundworms: These worms are more of a concern, particularly for puppies. They can be passed from mother to puppies. A heavy infestation can result in weight loss or inability to put on weight, vomiting and diarrhoea, and you may also notice that your dog has taken on a “pot-bellied” look. Regardless of symptoms, adult tapeworms may also be evident in your dog’s faeces. The Toxocara canis roundworm can potentially affect humans, especially children.

Worming Your Dog

Regular, effective worming treatments can prevent your dog from carrying worms and contaminating their environment. This should be done approximately every 3 months but the exact recommendation will depend on the worming product that is being used.
