Dogs of all ages are vulnerable to both roundworms and tapeworms. In many cases infection is not obvious, but vomiting and diarrhoea, abdominal discomfort, stunted growth and poor coat condition can occur. Adult dogs that spend any time outdoors and especially those that hunt and potentially eat prey should be wormed at least every three months.
Fleas are all around us especially during the warmer summer months so flea prevention rather than treatment is always preferable so routine application of a prescription spot-on product or prescription spray (every 4 – 8 weeks depending on product) is recommended.
