Deworming is essential to keeping your pet safe from internal worms.

Deworming is one of the most important components of your pet’s preventative and protective care. It helps to reduce their susceptibility to internal and external parasites. Once your pet is infected with worms, they are vulnerable to having gastrointestinal problems, hindered growth and development, as well as several other potentially irreversible conditions.

Are worms dangerous to humans?

Absolutely. You and the people around you can get worms from your pet who has been infected. Worms can survive in our intestines for a long time and can cause several health issues. For example, worms tend to cause blood loss and a depletion of your iron levels – these two factors can lead to anemia. Worms can also prevent people from passing food and nutrients properly through their digestive system.
