Worms and your Pet - What you need to know
Pets are an important part of the family. However, we cannot always control what they do, but we can control and prevent an unwanted disease from worm burdens. Unfortunately our pets can easily pick up a number of different worms which can easily be transferred to other family members, especially the kids! Knowing which worms they can pick up, how they can pick them up, how they are spread to pets and people, and how we can prevent this is important so that we can protect the whole family from unnecessary disease or harm. This webinar aims to briefly describe which worms may affect you pets and what effects these worms can have on your pets. How these worms can be spread to people and other pets and an overview of various options that are available to you to prevent any worm burdens with your pets lifestyle in mind, helping to protect the entire family.
