Treatment Recommendations and Worming Programs
Roundworms and Hookworms
These parasites infect puppies while still in their mother’s womb (roundworm) or as soon as they suckle milk (hookworms and roundworms). Hookworms are blood suckers and, in large numbers, are capable of causing anemia and death, particularly in puppies.
Due to the life cycle of these worms it is important to treat puppies frequently until at least 12 weeks of age. Both worms can also infect dogs of any age by ingestion of worm eggs or larvae. Hookworm larvae can also penetrate through the skin.
To reduce general environmental contamination by eggs and larvae from the bitch during pregnancy, pregnant bitches should be treated routinely. Prior to mating, at the end of pregnancy and during lactation.
This parasite lives in the caecum (large intestine) and is transmitted by eggs, passed onto the ground by one dog, being ingested by another dog. The eggs are extremely resistant and long lasting.
