Worms in dogs? Recognition and prevention
Worm infestation is an annoying topic for many dog owners. There are different species that can occur in dogs. In Germany, hookworms, dog tapeworms, fox tapeworms and roundworms are the most common.
Although they are not directly life-threatening, they extract important nutrients from the body of the four-legged friend. This leads to an undersupply in the long run, which can be especially dangerous for puppies and older dogs. For this reason, it is important that you take immediate action if you suspect a worm infestation and take the right measures.
Transmission of worms
Worms can enter your dog's body in many different ways. For example, they can be transmitted through the food. Especially the feeding with raw meat is a risk here. Licking other dogs' faeces or catching small animals such as mice can also lead to worms. In addition, some species are transmitted by fleas or mosquitoes.
To make matters worse, some worm species can survive for months or even years without a host. This allows them to spread largely unnoticed and then enter the body of the fur nose via the water, for example.
In principle, the risk of infestation with worms can therefore never be completely ruled out. Even if you pay particular attention to hygiene, there is always a danger. As long as you notice and treat the worm infestation in good time, this is no reason for panic.
Detecting the worm infestation
The first signs of a worm infestation include frequent vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. Even if your fur nose constantly rubs its rear end on the ground, worms are usually responsible for this behaviour.
In the further course the worm infestation shows up as a rule by the fact that the dog clearly emaciates and looks remarkably tired and knocked off. One of the reasons for this is that the worms take some of the nutrients away from the dog and it can no longer be supplied with sufficient nutrients.
If left untreated, worms can have serious long-term consequences and make the dog seriously ill. This is aggravated by the fact that in many cases a worm infestation is not recognized immediately.
For these reasons, it is highly recommended to carry out regular deworming. This is the only way to ensure that your dog is and remains worm-free and that possible consequences for his health are avoided.
Caution when choosing worming treatment
To deworm your fur nose, you must give him Vermal. However, care should be taken when choosing the appropriate preparation. Many products contain chemical agents. These do eliminate the worms. At the same time, however, they often lead to side effects and burden the organism of the four-legged friend partly quite considerably.
