Intestinal Worms are common in pets can cause illness or even death in pets. It is estimated that around 80% of dogs and 75% of cats carry intestinal worms. This is not surprising when you consider that some worms can produce up to 30,000 eggs a day and some eggs can survive in the environment for up to 5 years.
Not only do worms make your pet sick, they represent a serious health risk for humans as well. Children especially are most at risk of infection as they are often closest to the family pet.
The good news is worms can be easily prevented by regularly worming your pet.
