Many pet shop brands are less effective and less convenient to administer so we recommend using a veterinary prescribed wormer such as Milbemax as your routine worm treatment.
Dogs - We recommend that puppies are wormed monthly until 6 months of age and then every 3 months from then onwards. Lungworm (carried by slugs and snails) - we recommend Advocate. This can be used monthly, or twice per year as we are not in a high risk area.
Cats - Your vet will frequently prescribe your initial Milbemax cat worming tablets. Once your cat starts to go out they will need worming every 3 months from then onwards. If your cat remains a housecat then worming once or twice a year is sufficient.
