Why treat for worms when the stool test was negative?

June 16th, 2016 by admin

Routine treatments are required because the incidence of parasites is so high, and it poses a health risk both to pets and people.

It is actually good news when the stool sample is negative, because the worms present are young, who are not yet producing eggs. This means less risk for re-infection of your pet, less risk for your family, and less contamination of the environment.
