Worming is an important part of being a responsible pet owner, but it can be confusing figuring out which wormer to choose. We’ve come up with three questions you should ask yourself to make choosing the right wormer for your cat or dog easy.

1. Is the wormer suitable for my pet?

Not all wormers are suitable for all pets. They have different weight and age bands, and of course you have wormers for different species of animal. A dog wormer is not suitable for cats and vice versa.

2. What kind of worms does the wormer kill?

The two most common intestinal worms in the UK are roundworms and tapeworms. These are the two worms you definitely want your wormer to be effective against.

If you are travelling abroad with your pet, they may be at risk from other types of worms, so you should make sure you choose a suitable product. Speak to your pet retailer or vet if you are unsure if the wormer you’re thinking of using is suitable.

3. Does the type of wormer work for me and my pet?

Wormers come in different forms – tablets, spot-ons, creams and syrups are just some of the options available.

The method of treatment is more down to personal preference. Younger cats and dogs may prefer to be given a worming cream or worming syrup. Some owners may prefer to use a course of tablets over a few weeks, while others may want the convenience of a single, one dose treatment.

You know your pet best, so think about which method of worming treatment is best for you both.
