Pet, People and Parasites!
Most puppies have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for puppies to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your puppy is treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and other parasites.
Adult dogs and cats are dewormed according to the life style of you and your pets. Outdoor cats who hunt and roam should be dewormed at least 4 times a year. We recommend a monthly flea and parasite preventive called Revolution for your cat.
And for your dog we recommend Trifexis, a once a month flea and parasite preventive. Trifexis has a GREEN Chemistry award for Spinosad. Spinosad is used as an insect control product for use on crops.
