Safety first is safety always. When you deworm your pet regularly, you protect them from parasites and critters that can harm their health. By building up your pet’s immune system, you deny entry to unwanted pests, so your furry friend can always feel their best.

How do I know my pet has been infected?
If there’s one thing our furry friends are good at, it’s masking their pain. It can be hard to notice any signs that your pet may have a worm infestation. That is why it’s crucial to stay on top of their routine check-ups. When you bring them in, our team can detect and treat any symptoms your pet may be experiencing. The most common types of internal parasites found in pets include tapeworms, hookworms, roundworms, heartworms, and whipworms. Symptoms to look for include:
- Lack of appetite
- Weight loss
- Stomach bloating
- Vomiting and diarrhea
- Bloody or soft stool
When should I get my pet dewormed?
We recommend deworming puppies and kittens every 2 weeks until they are 3-months-old. As they enter their adult years, our veterinarians will work with you to create a parasite prevention plan tailored to your pet’s unique medical and lifestyle needs. When we create a plan, we can prevent your pet from contracting and transmitting these parasites to other animals and humans.
