How Do You Deworm Dogs and Puppies?

Posted by Team PetsUp on

 

Parasites don't want to kill your puppy; they just want to use them as a dinner plate! Our goal is to prevent that from happening. Intestinal parasites have been around forever and are not going away, but you can control them with the proper deworming schedule. Hookworms and roundworms are by far the most common intestinal worms found in puppies. Roundworms compete with your pet for food while hookworms live on blood, causing anemia.

Rough hair coats, diarrhea, malnutrition progressing to intestinal obstruction, and anemia are common issues with worms. We want to feed our pets - not the parasites. That is why we deworm dogs and puppies.  Don't wait until you are sure your pet has parasites because they have already caused damage at this point. 

Strategic Deworming guidelines

Strategically deworming dogs and puppies is a practice recommended by the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Deworming Puppies

Worms in puppies are common.  This growth phase of their life is when they are most susceptible! Knowing when to deworm puppies is important.

  • Deworm puppies at 2, 4, 6, & 8 weeks of age, then again at 12 & 16 weeks of age.
  • Deworm again at 6 months and 1 year.
  • Then deworm as an adult every 3 or 6 months.

Deworming Adults Dogs

We are recommending the standard here. If your dog is a non-vegetarian, they will need more frequent deworming.

  • General Dog Deworming:
  • For non-vegetarian dogs:  Every three months.
  • For vegetarian dogs:  Every six months. 
  • Dogs put everything in their mouth and need deworming to eliminate the parasites they will pick up.

Newly Acquired Animals

No matter what the history or age, assume they have parasites!

  • Deworm immediately and repeat in 2 weeks.
  • Then put on the above adult program
