Worms and internal parasites are a common health problem for dogs. Most pets have ringworms, roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, or whipworms. Adult roundworms can grow to seven inches. A female may lay over 200,000 eggs in a day.
If left untreated, canine worms may cause severe weight loss, vomiting, coughing, low energy, dull coat, and skin irritations. In puppies, a heavy infestation can result in serious health problems and even death.
Certain types of worms can infect people. The good news is that there are several great all natural products on the market which can help prevent intestinal parasites.
