The danger of parasite infestation has existed since the birth of the puppy. House dogs are infected by worms through mud, which is brought from the street on shoes. The only way to reduce the risk of infection is prevention. Your pets are especially at risk of contracting after illness or in spring and autumn, when immunity is not very strong after winter, and air humidity is increased. Sick and elderly animals require your special care. Worms further suppress the body, making it vulnerable to infections. It turns out a vicious circle. The function of monitoring the normal division of cells also lies on the immune system. She is the guardian against cancer. Dogs that have never been driven by worms are more likely to have diabetes and arthritis. Parasites lead to intoxication of the nervous system. For a puppy, worms are more dangerous than for an adult dog. Pulmonary parasites often rupture the lungs, intestinal - the intestines.
At the dacha your dog hunts. And many animals are intermediate hosts of worms. All the dog-walking sites are dotted with helminth eggs. They go out with feces and live in the earth for 6 years or more. Eggs of parasites are also in the water, so it costs the dog to drink water from the puddle - and the infection has already occurred. And if you give the dog fish and offal, the risk rises several times. You can not let a dog drink from a puddle or eat stool. Exhaust the dog to pick everything from the ground. How to do it, you can read in articles on specialized sites. In any case, the dog needs to be brought up.
Larvae of helminths can develop into blood-sucking insects, not just fleas, but even mosquitoes. Puppies are infected before birth through the placenta. You are obliged to treat helminthiases qualitatively. The first deworming should be done in 4 weeks. Adult dogs are treated 3 times a year. Overdosing is dangerous for the life of a dog, follow the instructions!

Symptoms of helminthiosis are not always pronounced. Worms damage the intestines and the circulatory system of the dog, can even lead to her death due to a rupture of the intestine. Some species settle in the brain, liver and skin of the animal. The infected puppy grows poorly, constantly ill, suffers from allergic reactions. At sick dogs matte fur, does not shine, the belly is swollen, the liver is enlarged, the mucous membranes are very pale, they are inactive. Possible discharge from the eyes, bad breath. The dog is tired and refuses to eat or, conversely, eats too much. Changes in appetite should alert you in any case.

Also, you may be alerted that the dog started to ride the pope. Vomiting may begin with helminths. The presence of whole worms or segments in the feces reliably indicates a helminthic invasion.
Worm carriers are 40% of dogs. The source of worms is meat, fish and grass. Cook and fry meat for the dog can not. It should be doused with boiling water before giving it to an animal. Do not give raw vegetables, it is better to add them to the porridge. Prevention of worms is cheaper than their treatment.

Toxocarosis (ascariasis) - caused by gray worms up to 20 cm long, the eggs of which the dog swallows during a walk. In puppies, they fall into the lungs. Eggs after ingestion develop into the larva. Larvae are carried by the current of blood throughout the entire body of the animal. Disturbing symptoms: exhaustion, vomiting, bronchitis, hiccough, dyspnea.

Some parasites are the cause of intractable diseases, and you can prevent them by just picking up the medicine. Helminthiases are more dangerous than commonly believed, because there is practically no organ where helminths can not live. In the process of their life they cause chronic diseases.

It is better once again to weigh the puppy and count the dose, than then to lament the death of the pet through your fault. It's better if you have an assistant. He will hold the puppy until you give the pill. It is better to crush the tablet into powder using two teaspoons. Watch out for the puppy to swallow the medicine, and not spit it out. If the puppy is given a whole pill, he can put it on his cheek and spit it out without swallowing it. Dogs are very smart. Small puppies are more suitable for emulsions. The room where the puppies are located should be cleaned with hot water with the addition of salt. You can not kiss the puppies and let them lick you. Communicate with the kids - wash your hands. Accustom to the cleanliness of your children.
