de-worm dogs and cats in Kerry

Worming Cats & Dogs

Worming Cats & Dogs

Parasites don’t want to kill your kitten or puppy, they want to feed off it. Our goal is to prevent that from happening. Intestinal parasites you can control them with a proper deworming schedule. Hookworms and roundworms are common intestinal worms found in puppies and kittens.

Roundworms compete with your pet for food, while hookworms live on blood, causing anemia.

They can cause rough hair coats, diarrhea, malnutrition progressing to intestinal obstruction, and anemia are some common issues caused by worms.

Feed the pet – not the parasites

That is why we deworm dogs and cats. Don’t wait until you are sure your pet has parasites because they have already caused damage at this point.

DE-WORMING PUPPIES AND KITTENS

Worms in puppies and kittens are common. The growth phase of their life is when they are most at risk. Knowing when to worm puppies and kittens is important.

Deworm puppies and kittens at 2, 4, 6, & 8 weeks of age, then again at 12 & 16 weeks of age.

  • Deworm again at 6 months and 1 year.
  • Then deworm as an adult.

ADULTS – WORMING DOGS AND CATS

If you think your dog or cat is a big hunter, they will need more frequent deworming.

  • General Dog or Cat Worming: Twice a year for life.
  • Dogs put everything in their mouth and need deworming twice a year to eliminate the parasites they will pick up.
  • Deworm outside cats twice a year for the same reason.
  • Cats that are strictly inside animals: Deworm once a year.
  • Cats that like to hunt: 3 times a year may be necessary.

NEWLY ACQUIRED ANIMALS

No matter what the history or age, think they have parasites!

Veterinary Dentistry in Killorglin

The Old saying “Prevention is better than cure” is true for pets too.

Our aim is to promote awareness of the importance of Veterinary Dentistry.

Not just smelly breath – it is a whole body disease. Infection can spread to affect the kidneys, heart valves and other areas.

Things you should know?

85 percent of dogs and cats over four years old have some form of periodontal disease. Senior dogs, those 7 or years older, are especially susceptible to periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease is a painful inflammatory condition in which bacteria attack the gums, ligaments and bone tissues that surround and support the teeth.

If left unchecked, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and travel to major organs, starting infections there and seriously compromising the health of your pet.

That’s why it is important to have your pet’s teeth examined by your vet on a routine basis.

Neutering/Spaying Killorglin

Neutering/Spaying Female & Male Pets

Neutering is a surgical procedure used to prevent pets from reproducing.

Service provided by Vets Killorglin.

  • Female animals: The common name for neutering a female is spaying, which consists of removing the uterus and ovaries. The technical term is ovario-hysterectomy.
  • Male animals: The common name for neutering a male is castration, which involves the removal of the testicles.

Best Ages for Neutering

  • Bitches: 4-5 months old
  • Male dogs: 4-6 months old
  • Cats (both male and female): 4-5 months
  • Rabbits (female): 6-9 months
  • Rabbits (male): 4-5 months

Bitches can be spayed 12 weeks after the first sign of bleeding.

Over Breeding

With five times more stray dogs than the England. The chances of a dog becoming a stray and ending up destroyed is 20 times greater for a dog in Ireland than it is for a dog in the UK.

While no official figures exist for numbers of stray or destroyed cats in Ireland, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that the country’s feline destruction rate is even higher than the canine equivalent.

Reasons for Neutering

  • Neutering increases your pet’s changes for a longer, healthier life – Spaying your female pet reduces her chances of developing mammary cancer and eliminates the threat of ovarian infections.
  • Neutering your male dog or cat prevents testicular cancer and may prevent prostate problems. Neutered cats are less likely to roam and fight or get killed on the roads.
  • A neutered dog or cat is a better pets.
  • Males neutered early in life are less aggressive towards other dogs and are not distracted by females in heat.
  • Spaying your female pet eliminates the problem of stray males camping in your garden and decreases her desire to roam and breed.
