Deworming

A standard protocol of the vet community is to deworm your puppy or kitten because they can carry several different parasites. They can receive these parasites from their mother, the environment, or from other animals.

Puppies should be dewormed

  1. every two weeks until 3 months of age
  2. once a month between 3 to 6 months of age
  3. 4 times a year after 6 months of age

Kittens should be dewormed

  1. every 2 weeks until 3 months of age
  2. once a month between 3 to 6 months of age
  3. Retreat at recommended intervals, depending on the parasitic prevalence in the area
