Treating worms in dogs and cats used to be a tricky business. Any products purchased outside of the vets seemed to be ineffective. Thankfully Drontal, Britain’s leading wormer can now be purchased directly online saving you money and a trip to the vets. Drontal uses a single dose of tablet rather than multiple pills causing upset and stress for the dog/cat and the owner. It’s also available in tasty beef flavour, so it acts like a treat rather than a treatment.
Worms can lead to serious problems in cats and dogs, and humans. Intestinal worms vary in species; some are small while others can grow up to five metres long. Some of the worms will scavenge on the food that enters the animal’s digestive system, robbing your pet of vital vitamins and minerals. Other species will love off the blood of your pet instead. If your animal has worms it is very easy for the people in your home to become infected too.
Worms can lead to the following health problems in pets:
They can also lead to health problems in humans:
Some of these health problems can be extremely serious and therefore finding and maintaining an effective treatment is essential for everyone in the home, not just your pets.
Thankfully it is possible to help reduce the chances of you and your family from becoming a host to worms. Always remove dog excrement responsibly, wash your hands and always wash fruit and vegetables before you eat them. Treat your animals with Drontal about four times a year, although hunter cats, kittens and puppies will require more frequent doses.
You can give your dog and cat one Drontal plus tablet with or without food. This will be effective against all intestinal worms. If your pet doesn’t like to eat pills it is possible to break the tablet up and hide it in with food to make it more palatable. Puppies will need the Oral Suspension which is suitable for dogs up to one year old. It is also possible to give the treatment as a spot on for cats.
For effective worm prevention continue using the worming treatment throughout the year. Wormers don’t remain active in the body so repeat every three months to help protect your pets. Look out for signs of infection such as dogs scooting along the floor, a pot belly and the other health problems listed above. You can purchase Drontal online which is far easier than visiting the vets and it’s more cost effective.
