What is the safe plan for treatment of worms?

June 16th, 2016 by admin

Puppies and kittens are routinely dewormed every 2 weeks until 3 months of age, then again at 4 months. Since the larvae of the worms continue to cycle through pets for several months when they are young, it is important to repeat the treatments. 

If a pet is diagnosed with intestinal parasites, bathing should be done about 1 day after the first treatment. 

These are the guidelines set by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and by the World Health Organization (WHO), for both the health of pets and people in the household.
