Dogs are constantly exposed to intestinal worms, even before they are born. Some species of worms can transfer to puppies through the placenta or from their mothers milk, while adult dogs are exposed to worm larvae or eggs through the soil in parks and backyards. Puppies under 6 months of age need to be wormed more frequently than adults as they produce large numbers of worm eggs and are particularly susceptible to infestation. Unwormed puppies are at risk of developing gastrointestinal problems like diarrhoea and vomiting, poor growth, anaemia and even death. To avoid this they should be wormed every 2 weeks from 2 to 12 weeks of age, then monthly until they are at least 6 months old. Adult dogs require treatment for worms at least every 3 months.

Safe for treatment of puppies from 2 weeks of age, as well as lactating females. Pregnant females should only be treated 10 days before whelping. Does not control heartworm.

  • Fasting prior to dosing is not necessary
  • Give an individual measured dose, fed as a treat by mouth 
  • Can be cut with a sharp knife to produce ½ chews
  • Can be crushed and mixed in canned or wet dog food
  • Dogs become reinfested with worms from larvae and eggs in their living environment, so dosing will need to be repeated through the entire life of the dog
