Deworming Services for Pets

Parasites can be fatal to your pet. Ensure their protection with a parasite prevention plan.

As small as parasites can be, they can cause immense damage if left untreated in your furry family member. Routine deworming helps reduce the risk of parasites causing long-term damage to the internal organs and other life-threatening situations. If you want to get your pet started on a deworming schedule, please give us a call at 416-444-7387.

Why is deworming my pet important?

Deworming is an important step of preventative care for reducing both internal and external parasites, including hookworms, whipworms, roundworms, tapeworms, and many more. When parasites are left untreated, they can cause fatal conditions in animals that can ultimately lead to death in the worst-case scenario. That’s why it’s important to stay on top of your pet’s routine checkups and ensure your pet is on schedule for their deworming plans. 

Will the dewormer cause harm to my pet?

Nope! Not giving dewormer will actually cause more harm. The medication is formulated to only target the parasites, so it does not affect your pet’s systems at all. The dosage and schedule would vary however depending on the breed and lifestyle habits of your pet. We will curate the best deworming schedule for you during your pet’s annual health visits. 

Can I use the same deworming medicine for dogs and cats?

No, you should never use the same deworming medication on dogs and cats. Although the ingredients of dog and cat dewormers are similar, it does not mean it would be a good idea to give the same medication. The amounts of ingredients utilized and the dosing amount may also vary contingent on the size of your pet. Your dog may react fine but a cat may react very differently to the same medication and may experience complications. Please consult with one of our team members first if you are unsure of anything.
