Deworming your pet is an important part of pet care.
Dangerous parasites are always present in the environment. If brought into your home, these parasites can be passed from your pet to you and your family. We normally associate parasites, such as roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms, with cats and dogs, but people can be infected with the same parasites.
Regular fecal checks and deworming are the best way to prevent parasitic disease and the transmission of intestinal parasites to your pets. It also prevents the shedding of parasite eggs, which can contaminate parks, lawns, or any place a pet defecates.
