REGULAR DEWORMING ENSURES THAT THE RISK OF ROUNDWORMS IN DOG AND CAT FAECES IS EFFECTIVELY REDUCED

When a worming treatment is given, it removes worms already present in the digestive tract, but it will not prevent re-infestation.

After ingestion of infective eggs from the environment it takes a little over 4 weeks for a roundworm (Toxocara spp.) to mature and produce eggs, which will then be shed in your pet’s poo.

Be aware, roundworm eggs are resistant – they can stay dormant in the environment for years, still alive and able to infest a host when ingested. For this reason, it is important that we prevent the shedding of roundworm eggs in the environment.

RECOMMENDATION FROM THE EXPERTS

Cats and dogs should be dewormed at least every 3 months.

For pets living in households with young children or anyone with a poor immune system monthly deworming is recommended1.
