The main message – about dogs and worms – is that dogs often carry internal parasites that you can’t see. And as well as making dogs ill, these parasites can be passed on to humans. That’s why it’s so important to give your dog a regular broad spectrum worm dose.
How often should you worm your dog?
The best answer is to talk to your own vet, who knows your dog and the local situation. On average, every three months is appropriate, but for some situations (eg high risk lungworm areas), once monthly is the ideal.
Talk to your vet: that is the only way to be sure.
