Quad Dewormer

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 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.
