Pet Deworming

Roundworms, Hookworms, Whipworms, and Tapeworms are the main culprits that require deworming of your pet. Cats and Dogs can get intestinal worms parasites from eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water.

The can also pick them up by displaying their normal, everyday behavior: licking, smelling, tasting, and eating anything they happen upon. Face it, animals will sniff something, if it smells good they will eat it, including dirt, other animals poop and even garbage. This behavior means they will pick up pests. It is important to understand that they can pass them on to other animals and humans.
