Puppy Flea and Worm Prevention

Puppy Flea and Worm Prevention

Dogs of any age can be affected by worms, but puppies  are more vulnerable and it’s especially important to keep them protected.  Due to the serious nature of lungworm infection, we recommend preventative treatment for all dogs in our care.  

Prevention is better than cure where fleas are concerned too, so we recommend regular preventative treatment.  Not only can pets have allergic reactions to flea bites, but fleas can also spread infectious diseases and it can be difficult to get rid of them once an infestation has taken hold.  

Our vets will be happy to advise you on the most appropriate treatments to protect your puppy based on it's particular envirnoment and risks..

WHEN:

  • Worming at 2 weeks4 weeks and 6 weeks of age
  • Flea and worming:  Monthly from 10 weeks.  A combined flea and worm treatment, including protection against lungworm. 

TIPS:

  • Ask the breeder when your new pet was last wormed and which brand of wormer was used. 
  • Make a calendar note to help you remember to flea and worm treat monthly.
