Deworming for dogs and cats is essential to prevent intestinal parasite infestations, which are quite common and can affect the health and well-being of your pets as well as potentially impact humans. It's important to have a proper deworming schedule to ensure the effectiveness of your pet's digestive system. Here's a detailed overview:


Proper Deworming Schedule


To prevent the development of parasitic worms in the bodies of dogs and cats, which can affect their health and even be transmitted to humans, it's important to deworm your pets regularly. Here's a schedule to follow:


- First deworming: Puppies and kittens, when they are around 3 weeks old (usually on days 21-23, at the latest by day 25); 

- At this stage, worms may start laying eggs in the digestive tract of the young pets, so deworming is necessary before the eggs are released into the environment;

- Subsequent dewormings: Every 2 weeks until they are 3 months old;

- After 3 months: Deworm once a month from 3 months to 6 months old;

- For pets over 6 months: Deworm every 2-3 months.

- Adult cats and dogs: Deworm 1-2 times a year. Depending on living conditions and hygiene, it may be necessary to deworm 3-4 times a year;


For pregnant or nursing cats and dogs


Females that are pregnant and nursing can transmit worms to their offspring through placental transfer and nursing. Therefore, special care must be taken:


- Deworm the female before breeding, about 1 month before mating;

- Deworm the female once again 1-2 weeks before giving birth;

- Deworm the nursing mother along with her nursing puppies or kittens.




Additional Tips


- If deworming is scheduled for the next morning, feed your pet a lighter meal in the evening;

- When deworming, you can mix the medication into their food or place it between pieces of meat for easier consumption;

- Alternatively, you can administer the deworming medication by gently holding the pet's mouth open, placing the pill on the back of the tongue, and then closing their mouth, stroking their throat to help them swallow;

- If these methods are ineffective, consult your veterinarian for professional assistance.


Important Notes


- The deworming schedule can vary depending on the living environment and hygiene conditions. For example, pets that roam freely or eat unregulated food sources may need more frequent deworming;

- Avoid deworming when your pet is sick or during extremely hot weather;

- After deworming, consider giving your pet digestive enzymes to support their digestive system;

- Maintain good hygiene and cleanliness in your pet's living area to prevent reinfestation;

- If you have contact with pets, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly afterward to minimize the risk of transmitting parasites.
