Dog worming

There has been a lot of confusion around which tablet to give pups. They should be given a roundworm treatment from two weeks of age on a fortnightly basis until 3 months when worming can then be reduced to monthly intervals.

It has been proven that roundworm burdens in pups can cause long term issues including an onset of sudden irreversible blindness in dogs at around 3 years of age. Please be diligent and worm young pups to prevent this in your valuable working team.

Drontal or Milpro are the best wormers for pups. Do not use Wormicide tablets as, although they are small, they only treat tapeworms and are therefore inadequate.

Don’t forget to vaccinate from 6 weeks old. We had several cases of Parvovirus on stations last year in unvaccinated dogs, with both pups and adults affected. Regular vaccination is relatively very cheap compared to the value of your team.
