Vaccination & Deworming Schedule For Your Dogs

Wellness, last updated 02nd, May 2018, BREJESH SINGH

  Deworming is a critical procedure for a young puppy or a new dog being brought into a household to eliminate the presence of any worms within the dog's stomach and intestines. Dogs are ideal hosts -- to worms and other parasites, that is. Animals that sniff, slurp, lick, and gobble anything in their paths, including dirt, trash, and poop, are bound to pick up pests. All the things they do with their mouths -- groom, kiss, wrestle, and other social habits -- can pass along unwanted guests to playmates and companions, canine and human alike. Here's your pet's vaccination & deworming schedule:
