Telling a seasoned breeder, what are the worms tablets for dogs, is useless. However, if a small puppy first settled in your house and you are just starting to experience the happy moments of gnawed heels and puddles in the corridor, a small overview will be very useful.
Algorithm of the right actions
The laws of nature are such that every living thing is more or less a parasite. However, the most famous helminths succeeded in this business. These masters of parasitism today settled in the body a quarter of the population of our planet. But how many injured dogs, it is not known for certain, but researchers believe that every third animal is a carrier of infection.
Based on this, it can be assumed that it is almost impossible to get a clean and healthy dog. Therefore, a completely logical question is brewing: how to cure an animal from worms? The action algorithm should be based on the following principles and rules:
- Active reproduction and resettlement of helminths in the body of a new host falls in February-March. It is during this period that preventive measures to disinfect animals will be most effective.
- Puppies under the age of 6 weeks should not be given any medications. According to the rules, the breeder must carry out all the necessary procedures before conception, then the chances of infection of newborns are minimal.
- Worm tablets for dogs must be given before vaccination. This is best done 10 days before the date of revaccination prescribed by the doctor.
- You can get rid of your pet from parasites only if it is completely healthy, otherwise the disease can be aggravated.
- Particularly sensitive dog breeds and animals prone to allergic reactions, anti-worms are selected only by a doctor. The veterinarian will be able to choose the best drug for the pet and prescribe a sparing dose. However, it will be necessary to undergo annual deworming in any case.
It is important to remember that it is necessary to give drugs against worms simultaneously to all animals living in the same territory. If your dog looks completely healthy, eats well and regularly gains weight, then prevention should be carried out every six months. More frequent medication may interfere with the liver and kidney of the pet.
