Protecting Your Pet Against Worms

Worms (tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms) survive in pets by draining pets of their nutrients and blood. Pets with worms can experience anemia (low red blood cell count), lethargy, and poor appetite. Severe cases of worms can even become fatal for some pets.

Ways your pet can contract worms:
  • Eating fleas
  • Catching mice, rats, or other small prey
  • Eating feces of other pets and animals
Symptoms your pet may have worms:
  • Weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Dull coat
  • Swollen belly
  • Blood or mucus in the stool

Pets most at risk include kittens, puppies, and pets that have been raised in yards or on farms.

Use a pet wormer to remove worms that may be in your pet's body
Tip

It is recommended that you deworm your pet every six months.
