We offer deworming since this is an important aspect of pet care. Almost 85% of cats and dogs are born with parasitic infections. Illness and stress, however, can weaken the animal’s immune system and can awaken larvae that were dormant. Intestinal parasites affect growth and development and can be passed from animals to owners. If you suspect your pet is suffering from a parasitic infection, we can perform a coprology to be able to observe the presence of parasite eggs and infection. Common endoparasites:

  • Coccidia
  • Giardia
  • Hookworm
  • Roundworm
  • Tapeworm
  • Whipworms

Each dewormer targets different parasites. You can’t buy just any medicine assuming it will work. It is also important to follow the dosage. 

Although the anthelmintic (the active ingredient in the drug) directly targets parasites, animals weakened by infection are sometimes too fragile to tolerate the toxicity of the drug, and overdose is possible if the instructions are not followed properly. deworm every two weeks in puppies and kittens at least 2 weeks old. We recommend continuing monthly thereafter continuously. It is important to do the same with the mother, on the same schedule, to prevent infections when breastfeeding. 

Ways to control pests 

Parasites are able to continuously infect the same host. If you want to control pests, it is important to destroy the eggs and larvae before the infestation begins again. It is, therefore, necessary to maintain a clean environment for the pet. Avoid soil and grass when possible. Animal waste should be cleaned up every day.
