Questions about Dogs Worms

How often should I worm my puppy?


Puppies should be wormed at 2 weeks of age and then retreated at 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks of age to ensure their continued freedom from worms. We do not recommend worming pregnant dogs, but after birth the mother should also be wormed at the same interval as her puppies until they are 12 weeks of age. Thereafter, both mum and puppies should be wormed once every three months.


We recommend using Beaphar WORMclear® Tablets for Dogs, Beaphar Worming Syrup or Beaphar Worming Cream for puppies. Beaphar WORMclear® Tablets for Dogs can also be used for nursing and adult dogs.


Puppies are often born with worms (because they travel across the placenta) or become infested through their mother’s milk during nursing. Worm infestations in young puppies may cause abdominal swelling and pain, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhoea, and on rare occasions, rupture of the bowel. A young puppy that is thin with a ‘pot-belly’ is often described as a typically ‘wormy’ puppy.
