How often can I worm a puppy?


If you are in UK, you will be required to worm a puppy of at least 7 to 8 weeks old every month until 6 months. And after this period they need to be wormed after every three months.

Puppies are vulnerable to infection from parasites even before they are born or through their mother?s milk. Worming needs to be done to your puppy every 2 weeks until they are 12 weeks old, and then the frequency changes to every month, up to the time they are six months old. Roundworms present a small but significant risk to young children so regular worming should be done throughout a dog?s life.
Weaned puppies should be wormed every 2 weeks until 12 weeks of age. There after, they can be wormed every month until they are 6 months of age when they can be treated as adults.
Deworming your puppy is a critical part of his puppy care. 98% of all puppies have worms that they carried from their mother before their birth.Three weeks is the earliest time you can deworm the puppies after they are born. it is recommended to go every week depending on the medication until 12 weeks. We start puppies on heartworm prevention which has some defense against these worms. So at the 8 wk visit they get dewormer if they hadn't started it then and once a week until the 12 wk visit. Then they get Interceptor monthly until 6 mo. After then the owner can change to Tri-Heart/Heartgard.
