Deworming Dogs and Puppies Effectively Dogs have the habit of exploring things that come their way but they hardly have the idea what is good for them and what is bad. They put their mouth in the trash, poop and everywhere when left unchecked which is why they get infected with worms easily. Some of the commonly found worms in dogs that are responsible for infection include – roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms.

These intestinal parasites cause diarrhoea, vomiting, shortness of breath, weight loss, anaemia and itching near the hind area which can make the pet’s life completely miserable. Apart from this, there is another set of worms called heartworms that infect the heart and lungs of the dogs and can prove to be fatal if not prevented in advance. They block the valves of the heart and the lung vessels which can lead to respiratory problems and even a heart attack in worms. Thus, to save a dog from undergoing such issues, he must be dewormed regularly.


For puppies, it is should be more frequent i.e. 2-3 months. This is so because puppies are highly susceptible to worms and may acquire it from their infected mother during the birth or through her milk. The fact is – most of the pups contain worms when they are just weeks old. Therefore, vets recommend deworming puppies every 2 weeks and the time is gradually increased as they become 6 months old. But until 6 months they have to have deworming sessions. So, here is what you must do to deworm your dog successfully.
