Dog Dewormers Buyer's Guide


Share this  

Dewormers, or “wormers” as they are sometimes called, play a role in every dog’s life. Puppies need to be dewormed multiple times throughout their young lives, and adult dogs can benefit from prophylactic deworming at least once a year. Of course, if you suspect your dog has worms, he should be treated immediately. Intestinal parasites can not only make dogs very sick but some also pose a health risk to humans.

Thankfully, treating intestinal worms in dogs is relatively easy with the right pet medications. A microscopic fecal examination performed at a veterinary clinic is the best way to determine what type of intestinal parasites your pet may be carrying. Armed with this information, picking an appropriate product is simple. Remember that a dog may have worms even if he is not acting sick and you do not see any evidence of worms in his stool. The following table compares some common dewormers for dogs. Remember the parasites listed aren't the only ones that affect dogs, so if you have any questions about your pet's health, be sure to contact your vet.
