Intestinal worms can kill pups by causing weakness, gut blockage and anaemia.
They can also be passed onto people causing eye, brain and skin disease.
During pregnancy, Roundworms in the bitch travel across the placenta to her unborn pups. This means pups are born with roundworms and will have adult worms (up to 10 cm long) in their gut within two weeks of birth. These can cause gut blockages and ill-health. Roundworms are also picked up from their mother’s milk and the pups’ environment.
Worming must therefore be repeated to stop re-infestation.
Hookworms can cause death in pups due to anaemia (blood loss). These tiny worms are picked up from their mother’s milk or the pup’s droppings. They can also burrow through the skin.
Whipworms also live on the pup’s blood but are normally not a problem in pups less that 12 weeks old.
Puppies can get Tapeworms if they eat fleas (Flea Tapeworm) or raw offal (Hydatid Tapeworm).
Puppies should be wormed every two weeks from two weeks of age with a product that kills Roundworm and Hookworm such as Wormban.
From 12 weeks old, dogs should be wormed monthly to six months old then every three months with an adult “all-worming” tablet or paste.
If puppies have access to raw offal (farm carcasses, pet mince), they should be wormed every six weeks with a product that kills Hydatid Tapeworm such as “Popantel”.
