Dog Worming & Kill Fleas

Dog Worming and Flea Prevention - A Quick Guide from Pet Supplies Warehouse

Does your dog have any of these symptoms?

  • Random Weight loss
  • Scurfy and/or a dull dry coat
  • Unusual Hunger
  • Diarrhea and Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Unusual Lethargy
  • Coughing
  • Worms seen in vomit or poop.

Puppies should be wormed from the age of 2 weeks and then at 2 week intervals. There are a variety of products out there from pastes and other tablets that you feed directly to your dog, to spot treatments and even worming injections.  The good news though, once your dog has reached adulthood they should only need to be wormed every 8-12 weeks.

 
Although Flea treatment usually is not so critical during the winter months, come Spring Time you should consider giving your dogs a Flea Treatment. This usually entails treating the dog every 8 -12 weeks. 

It is important to buy a solution to fleas that will kill all remaining adult fleas whilst stopping the development of flea eggs and larvae. To do so buy a flea product with an 'adulticide' (kills the adults) and an insect growth regulator liwk Nylar (pyriproxyfen) or methoprene. You must treat the area for successful flea extermination so vacuum the area thoroughly and consider a fumigator/mist/spray.
