Worming Schedule for Puppies and Adult Dogs

Worming Schedule for Puppies, Kittens, Cats & Dogs
Parasites don’t want to kill your kitten or puppy; they just want to use them as a dinner plate! Our goal is to prevent that from happening. Intestinal parasites have been around forever and are not going away, but you can control them with the proper deworming schedule. Hookworms and roundworms are by far the most common intestinal worms found in puppies and kittens. Roundworms compete with your pet for food, while hookworms live on blood, causing anemia.

Rough hair coats, diarrhea, malnutrition progressing to intestinal obstruction, and anemia are common issues with worms. We want to feed our pets – not the parasites. That is why we deworm dogs and cats. Don’t wait until you are sure your pet has parasites because they have already caused damage at this point.
Strategic Deworming Guidelines
Strategically deworming dogs and cats is a practice recommended by the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Deworming Puppies and Kittens
Worms in puppies and kittens are common. This growth phase of their life is when they are most susceptible! Knowing when to worm puppies and kittens is important.
Deworm puppies and kittens at two, four, six and eight weeks of age, then again at 12 and 16 weeks of age.
Deworm again at six months and one year.
Then deworm as an adult.
Adults – Worming Dogs and Cats
We are recommending the standard here. If your dog or cat is a big hunter, they will need more frequent deworming – you must assess the risk for your pet.
General Dog or Cat Worming: Twice a year for life.
Dogs put everything in their mouth and need deworming twice a year to eliminate the parasites they will pick up. Deworm outside cats twice a year for the same reason.
Cats that are strictly inside animals: Deworm once a year.
Cats that like to hunt: three times a year may be necessary.
Newly Acquired Animals
No matter what the history or age, assume they have parasites!
Deworm immediately and repeat in two weeks.
Then put on the above adult program.

Jasper

Jasper was a year and three months old when he very suddenly passed away. Jasper was more than just a dog to me, he was my best friend. Jasper was the perfect dog for me, and I think if we could ask him he would say I was the perfect person for him. He loved to watch movies with me, and would lay around the house watching me clean, or work on my computer. He loved to play with people and animals of all ages, and sizes. I could name at least one hundred reasons why I was in love with Jasper. He was so kind, playful, and funny, he was the best listener, and the perfect shoulder to cry on. I miss him more than I can express. As short as our time was together, it was great time. Jasper will be missed and remembered by everyone who met him, but he will be missed the most by myself, and my daughter.
