Q: Do I really need to be concerned about my pet having worms?

A: Intestinal parasites (worms) are extremely common in both cats and dogs, especially in puppies and kittens. The most common intestinal parasites are roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. Roundworms and hookworm infections are the most worrisome due to their ability to be passed from pets to people. Young children are the most often infected. They can become seriously ill or blinded from roundworm larva migrating into their eye.

Healthy looking pets may be infected with intestinal parasites and show no outward signs. So not seeing worms in your pet’s feces is no guarantee that he is parasite free. That is why it is extremely important to have your pets dewormed every 6 months and also have an intestinal parasite exam be done by your veterinarian at least once a year to ensure that your pets and your family are safe from this preventable problem.
