Questions about Dogs Worms

  • What types of worms can harm my dog?

  • There are two common types of worms; roundworms and tapeworms. Both these worms have the potential to harm your dog.

    Roundworms are the biggest concern as they are also able to infect people. Tapeworms are usually less of a concern. They do little harm to pets, but can make alarming appearances in faeces. The simplest solution is to worm your dog at least once every three months with a product that removes both roundworms and tapeworms.

    However, one type of tapeworm (Echinococcus granulosus) can be transmitted to people via infected dog faeces. It is mainly found in mid-Wales, Herefordshire and the Western Isles of Scotland. It is not usually an issue for family pets as it can only be transmitted to dogs in uncooked offal from infected sheep carcasses. It these areas of the country, it is advisable to worm your dog with a product able to kill this unpleasant tapeworm. Check your chosen worming product carefully, or if you’re unsure speak to your specialist pet retailer or vet.

    Beaphar WORMclear® Tablets for Dogs are effective in one simple dose, and kill roundworms and all types of tapeworms.
