Your pets can get worms from other infected animals, during pregnancy or via the mothers milk, or via fleas and lice.
You may not see signs of worms in the faeces. This does not mean your dog is clear of worms. Signs of a worm infestation may include:
- bloated tummy and or diarrhoea
- dragging bottom on the floor
- lack of energy
- dull coat
- increased appetite
Worming treatment is recommended approx every 3 months for dogs. Factors like age and lifestyle may alter this slightly.
Veloxa wormer protects from Roundworm, Tapeworm, Hookworm and Whipworm. Veloxa is beef flavoured and is a chewable tablet. There is a size available for all breeds and ages, please ask a member of staff for details. We just need to know the age and weight of your dog.
As the tapeworm can be ingested by dogs whilst inside a flea it is important to also treat with a spot on for fleas and lice.
Veloxa has so far proven to be very palatable, at official testing it scored 97% in palatability tests. We have had some great feedback from customers too.
