How to Choose the Best Deworming Treatment For Your Pet

Read more to learn the the best deworming and worming non-negotiables to keep in mind at your next vet visit.

We all want what’s best for our pets but knowing how to choose the best deworming treatment is no easy feat! With so many products on the market, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure if you’re protecting your four-legged friend from all of the parasites that can cause them harm. 

Below, we’ll share three deworming treatment non-negotiables to keep in mind so that you feel confident to make the right choice at your next vet visit.


Deworming Treatment Non-Negotiables

1. Does It Protect From All Intestinal Worms?

Not all deworming treatments are made equally. So, when weighing up the options, never assume that all products protect against all species of intestinal worms. You’ve probably heard about ‘the big four’ intestinal worm groups, but what you might not know is that they each have different species. Make sure the treatment you choose controls and defeats all of them!

2. Is It Safe to Partner With Other Treatments?

An Allwormer also needs to be the perfect partner to your pet’s other regular treatments like heartworm, flea, and tick prevention. Unfortunately, not all deworming treatments are safe to use with other products, so you’ll want to make sure you choose a solution that plays well with others.

3. Is It Easy to Use?

With health and safety covered, you’ll also want an Allwormer that’s practical to use! Pet owners know how difficult deworming can be, so choosing a product that makes the experience as pain-free as possible is the goal.
