Unfortunately, dogs and cats are ideal hosts for worms and other parasites. All of the things your pet does with their mouth; groom, wrestle, play, lick etc. can pass these parasites along to other animals and humans. Because of this it is important to utilize the proper care and medication to prevent the catching and spreading of these parasites.
If you or your veterinarian suspect your pet has worms they may ask you to bring a fecal sample to your examination.
There are multiple ways to safely de-worm your dog or cat, and the sooner they are treated, the better. Your veterinarian will give you pet medicine by mouth, or in shot form to kill the worms without harming your pet. Many of these medicines treat worms as well as a broad range of parasites that may be living in your pet.
