Roundworm can cause illness in dogs at any age. Puppies are infected by their mother; the worms live in the gut and shed eggs in the faeces, puppies require worming every 2 weeks until they are 3 months old. After which time the puppy can be wormed quarterly. Worms can cause sickness and diarrhoea in young animals but adult dogs may show no signs. Adult dogs should be wormed at least every 3 months, although if pregnant or feeding worming should be carried out more frequently. Roundworms can be transmitted to humans, in particular young children which is why it is imperative to treat your dog for roundworm.
Symptoms of worms can include: segments in your dog's faeces which look like a grain of rice, scooting (rubbing its bottom along ground), increased appetite, weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting and in severe cases anemia.
Tapeworms are less threatening to your dog’s health, but do still need to be treated. This worm is carried by fleas so regular flea control is necessary to prevent re-infestation.
