What types of worms do I need to protect my dog from?
Many different types of gastrointestinal worms can infect your dog. In Australia, the most common are hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, flea tapeworms, hydatid tapeworms and heartworms. Not every dog wormer treats all of them, with heartworms in particular often requiring a specialised dog worming tablet or treatment. These gastrointestinal worms are the most deadly (and preventable) of them all, so make sure you invest in a heartwarming product from us today.
What is the best wormer for my dog?
When shopping for dog wormers, the best one for your pooch is one that treats any potential infestations and offers complete protection against the most common worm types. Another consideration is to choose a product that is right for your pet’s age, weight and life stage. Brands like Drontal, HeartGard Plus and NexGard Plus have a great selection, including puppy worming tablets, worming tablets for adult dogs, chewable and topical products and more.

Can I treat my dog for worms without going to the vet?
It is highly recommended that you consult a veterinarian before starting any dog worming tablets or other treatments. That is because there are a variety of possible worms your dog might be affected with, and a medical diagnosis is the only way to know you are actually treating the problem. Furthermore, a vet can determine the severity of the worm infestations and advise whether any other measures need to be taken to preserve your dog’s health.
