Deworming Services for Pets

Protect your pet from deadly parasites by deworming them regularly.

Deworming is used to target and kill intestinal parasites that cause infection and diseases in pets. These internal parasites affect the growth and development of your pet. They can transfer to other pets and humans as well. The best way to fight off these parasites is through deworming. If you are unsure about a parasitic infection, we can perform fecal examinations to determine what parasite is infecting your pet. Our veterinarians can suggest the most suitable dewormer for your pet and advise you on the right dosage. To learn more about our deworming services, call us at 905-853-3591.

Can I use over-the-counter dewormers for my pet?

It is advised that you consult a veterinarian before you administer an over-the-counter dewormer. Different dewormers target different parasites. Without knowing the cause, you cannot administer a solution and expect your pet to get well. Heavily infected pets might be fragile and adversely react to chemicals in dewormers. The best option is to consult a veterinarian so they can give you the right dosage and advice.

Studies show that almost 85% of puppies and kittens are born with parasitic infections. Newborn puppies and kittens can be dewormed when they are 8-weeks-old. Deworming should be repeated every 2 weeks up to 5 times to remove all of the parasites from their body.
