The Symptom Of Worms You Probably Never Look For!

The Symptom Of Worms You Probably Never Look For!

This blog post is about "The Symptom Of Worms In Dogs You Probably Never Look For!"

When you read about the signs and symptoms of worms in dogs you get the usual suspects. But there is one that most people don't think about, which we will get to at the end of this email. 

  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Lethargy
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Dehydration
  • Cough 
The problem is, these are symptoms of lots of other health problems in dogs.
 
Then you have symptoms that many people think of first such as...
 
  • Visible worms in fur or faecal matter
  • Scooting and sliding
  • Dull coat
  • Irritation

But there is one symptom that many people don't think about. One sign that catches a lot of very well educated dog owners out.

It leads to them missing a diagnosis of worms, and problem goes unchecked.

The sign or symptom?

Nothing. Nada.

No sign or symptom at all! 

Not all dogs on all occasions show signs of worms. It is very often hard to see any signs of worms and your dog will appear to be absolutely fine.

 

Regular Worm Testing 

Even if you are following a prevention regime, be that from a vet or a natural option, regular testing is good idea. It's the only way to know if what you are doing is actually working.

Some people will even choose not to follow any prevention regime and simply test on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.

We suggest testing for worms at least four times a year and lungworm every 6-8 weeks.

You can buy Worm or Lung Worm separately, or we have a Combined Worm & Lungworm kit.

You can also do a home screening for Giardia and get instant results, its just like a Covid Test. 

If you want to test for them all you can save £7 and buy our All-in-One kit.
