DEWORMING YOUR PET
Puppies need to be dewormed starting as young as 2 weeks of age. Followed
by deworming medication every 2 weeks until they are 12 weeks of age.
Then monthly treatments are recommended until your puppy is 6 months of
age.† Deworming medication should be given to your adult pet, once a year.
Kittens need to be given deworming medication starting when they are
3 weeks of age. Then, they need to be dewormed every 2 weeks until they
reach 3 months of age. Monthly treatments are recommended until your cat
is 6 months of age, then annually.
- Puppies, kittens and senior pets are more susceptible
to parasitic infections than adult pets. Giving your pets deworming
medication along with maintaining their good physical hygiene, prevents
intestinal parasites in all dogs and cats.
- The parasites not only jeopardize the health of
animals but also pose a health risk to the public. Young children and
immune compromised individuals are at greater risk of acquiring many
kinds of parasitic diseases from infected animals.
- Your animalís health care and its deworming treatments
are tailored to its individual needs.
- Annual treatments with broad-spectrum deworming medications
are recommended for animals that have a hunting and predatorial
lifestyle (such as outdoor cats), or for pets that come in contact
with wildlife and rodents, along with all senior pets.
- Indoor cats may also come in contact with parasites and some
of them may need deworming annually.
