Deworming Services for Pets

Internal Parasite Control and Prevention for Pets

Deworming is an important component of your pet’s preventative and protective care. Proper management protects your pet, family, and community from the impact of parasites, including roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms. Please contact our team if you wish to discuss parasite and disease transmission in more detail.

What happens when a pet is dewormed?

Deworming medications are available in tablet, liquid, and topical form, which will be prescribed based on your pet’s specific needs. 

How often should my pet be dewormed?

We recommend deworming be a constant and routine part of your pet’s health care. We will determine your pet’s and family’s individual risks and circumstances during your annual health examination. Factors that are considered include, but are not limited to: the age of your pet; if your pet has dietary indiscretion on walks/at home, eats feces, or hunts; if your pet is fed raw meat products; if there are children or immuno-compromised family members; types of outdoor activities (i.e. does your dog frequent dog parks / off-leash / hiking; does your cat roam outdoors, etc.); and travel out of province.
