Types of Worms & How We Treat Them

De-worming means treating your pet for G.I. tract and intestinal parasites. Heartworm is a deadly disease spread from the bite of an infected mosquito carrying the heartworm larvae.

Roundworms and tapeworms are contracted by eating infected fleas and can be seen in your pet’s stool. Puppies can also be born with roundworm, a parasite that causes extreme discomfort and even death in severe cases. Kittens may become infected with roundworm their mother’s milk or feces.

Heartworms have no outward effects and veterinarians recommend a regular check for them during an examination.

Topical and monthly drugs can treat your pet for parasites. Our veterinarian may also recommend drug by injection every 6 months to keep infection under control. Annual physical exams include a check for heartworms, which is determined by a simple blood test.

If you believe your pet is infected, give us a call today to schedule a de-worming appointment or contact us by filling out our form.

“I brought in my 6-week old kitten for her first check up and vaccinations a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The staff were friendly. All of my concerns were addressed and all my questions were answered in depth. The prices were very reasonable.”

“I’m so glad that this is our neighbourhood vet! Our cat disappeared and was found with a broken leg. We took him here and the surgery was arranged. The staff and doctors are all very friendly and kind. We’ve even had calls at home to check and see how he’s recovering.”
