What is deworming a dog?

Deworming simply means getting rid of intestinal worms (parasites) in your dog. Worms can sound gross and embarrassing, but most dogs will get at least one type of intestinal worm at some point in their lives. Tapeworms are common in dogs. Deworming medications contain ingredients that break down and debilitate worms so they can be expelled from your dog’s body.

How do I know if my dog has tapeworms?

Tapeworm segments are easily seen around your pet’s anal region or in their poop, similar to grains of white rice. Of course, it’s not always obvious that your dog has tapeworms, so the best way to identify a problem is through an exam performed by a veterinarian.

How did my dog get tapeworms?

The most common way dogs get tapeworms is from having fleas. Dogs that hunt or chase small rodents and rabbits (even in their own backyard) may also be at risk of infection from tapeworms.

How do I know if my cat has tapeworms?

Tapeworm segments look similar to grains of white rice and are easily seen stuck in your cat's hair under the tail or by the back legs, or in their poop. Of course, it's not always obvious that your cat has tapeworms, so the best way to identify a problem is through an exam performed by a veterinarian.

How did my cat get tapeworms?

The most common way your cat got tapeworms is from having fleas, which often carry immature tapeworms. Cats infested with fleas will frequently ingest them as they groom themselves (a daily behavior) and become infected with tapeworms. Cats that hunt small rodents (in your house or backyard) may also be at risk of infection from tapeworms.

I am switching from a medication. Do I need to wait to start quellin®?

quellin® soft chews are bioequivalent to Rimadyl tablets of the same milligram strength. As such, they can be used immediately as directed by your veterinarian. However, carprofen (the drug in quellin®) and other NSAIDS are entirely different medicines, are not interchangeable. Changes in drugs, dose, and dosing intervals should only be made under the direction of your dog’s veterinarian.

What is deworming a dog?

Deworming simply means getting rid of intestinal worms (parasites) in your dog. Worms can sound gross and embarrassing, but most dogs will get at least one type of intestinal worm at some point in their lives. The most common worms found in dogs are hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms and whipworms. Deworming medications contain ingredients that break down and debilitate worms so they can be expelled from your dog’s body.

How did my dog get worms?

Dogs can pick up worms (and fleas and ticks) during their daily activities like walks or playing at the dog park. Digging and eating dirt, chasing rodents and having fleas can all lead to worm infection.

Your veterinarian can help provide you with an appropriate deworming strategy that best fits your dog’s needs.
