How often should I worm my dog?
Adult dogs and puppies over 12 weeks of age should be wormed at 3 monthly intervals. Beaphar One Dose Wormer is an effective and simple way to provide this necessary regular treatment.
How often should I worm my puppy?
Puppies should be wormed for roundworm at 2 weeks of age and then re-treated at 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks to ensure continued freedom from worms. Beaphar Worming Syrup is ideal for this.
Why do I have to give Beaphar One Dose Wormer with food?
We recommend giving Beaphar One Dose Wormer tablets with a small amount of food as this helps to slow the passage of the wormer through your dog’s system, allowing maximum worming effect to take place, and reducing the possibility of vomiting. It also often makes the administration of the wormer simpler as your dog enjoys his or her favourite food without realising the wormer is present.
Should I be worried about worms?
You should be concerned about worming, but not worried. Not carrying out regular worming can lead to serious health problems for your pet and may lead to expensive vet bills. You could also be responsible for passing on a worm infection to a child. Fortunately, modern worming is low cost and easy to carry out. Beaphar have a wide range of worming products for all ages and come in a range ofdosing options for even the most awkward pets.
My dog has been sick after worming – what should I do?
Sometimes dogs are sick after taking tablets or medication, and we often recommend administering with a little food to reduce the chance of this happening. If your dog is sick immediately afterwards, it is probable that the worming treatment will not have been absorbed into the dog’s system, and will need to be repeated in a couple of days time when its tummy has settled again. If this happens, provide fresh drinking water and keep an eye on the animal to ensure its condition does not deteriorate. If vomiting persists or the dog seems to be in distress, we advise contacting a vet. Take the product packaging with you, so that your vet can see what you have been using. Like humans, some animals have sensitivities to medications which are not evident until they take them for the first time. If you find one type of treatment is unsuitable for a pet, Beaphar have a range of worming solutions which can offer an alternative.
My vet says pet shop wormers do not work – is this true?
By law, all pet medicines have to pass stringent testing to prove effectiveness, quality and safety before they make it to market. Indeed, to be allowed to be sold “over the counter”, products have to have a long and robust safety record. Newly discovered medicines have to be sold by vets for at least 5 years before they can be assessed to see if they are considered sufficiently safe to be sold without professional supervision, so vets do often supply different products to retailers, some of which work in different ways. However, all pet medicines, no matter whether they are sold by vets, pharmacists or retailers, go through the same testing requirements to prove that they are safe for the pet, their owner and the environment, that they are effective, and that the manufacturer can consistently make them to the required standard. All Beaphar wormers have been proven effective and to “do what it says on the pack”. If you are unsure or concerned about the most suitable product for your pet, please feel free to contact our customer care team who can guide you in the right direction.
What are the dangers to human health of pet worms?
Cat and dog worms are termed “zoonoses”, which means that they are transmissible to people. The most common source of infection is from contaminated soil or sand play pits. Cleaning up after cats and dogs is vital to prevent transmission of parasites to other animals and to children. When worm eggs are passed in a pet’s faeces, they are initially non-infective. They need about 2 weeks in the environment to develop to the infective stage. This means that it is not dangerous for an owner to “scoop the poop”, but it is very anti-social not to. Once in a human body, the eggs hatch out and the larvae undertake a journey around the body. They can end up in the eye, causing sight impairment and sometimes blindness, in the lungs, causing asthma, and in the brain, where it is thought they may be one of the causes of poor concentration and other symptoms. Worming our pets is so easy and so inexpensive, and a proactive way to prevent all of these things from happening to our own and our neighbours’ children.
Can I catch worms from my pet?
Only indirectly. Worm eggs are passed out in a pet’s faeces when it goes to the toilet. However, at this time, the eggs are not infective, so, as long as you clear up after your pet as soon as possible, there is no risk to you from worms. However, if you leave their faeces hanging around in the garden, the eggs will have a chance to mature and become infective. Worm eggs are very tough, and can remain infective in soil for a number of years. So, if you worm your pet regularly (every 3 months) and clear up after it, you should have nothing to worry about. The common type of worm that infects people (pinworm) is in no way connected to the worms that our cats and dogs carry.
Does my dog have worms?
Most dogs are born with worms, and they encounter new sources of infection every time they go for a walk, so the answer is probably “yes”. Symptoms of worms may include: a dull coat, a lack of energy, diarrhoea, vomiting, weight loss, abdominal swelling, pain, dragging their bottoms on the floor (itching , also known as ‘scooting’), coughing, shortness of breath and even visible worms in their poo. However, many adult dogs have symptomless infections, so don’t assume that your pet is worm-free if there are no obvious external signs. It is probable that they do have a low level of infection (as it is difficult to avoid), causing re-infection of themselves, other pets, and children. Regular treatment is now low cost and easy to administer. Beaphar has a wide range of high quality, easy to administer treatments in a variety of dosing styles to suit every pet.
Which types of worms are likely to affect my pet?
All cats and dogs have worms throughout their lives. An apparently healthy pet may show no symptoms at all, but may still be carrying a significant population of parasites, passing eggs out in its faeces and spreading infection by so doing. The worms found in cats and dogs in the UK fall into two main categories – roundworms and tapeworms. Roundworms are the biggest concern, as they are also able to infect people. Cats and dogs should be regularly wormed to remove these unwelcome guests, and ensure no infection is passed on to pet or person. Tapeworms, though unpleasant, are less of a concern. They do little harm to pets, but can make alarming appearances in faeces, sometimes being still mobile. The simplest solution is to worm your pet regularly (4 times a year is a good guide for the average family pet) with a product that removes both roundworms and tapeworms. For cats, Beaphar Multiwormer for cats. For dogs, choose Beaphar One Dose Wormer.
