If you don't like to worm your dog or only worm them sporadically then a worm egg count is for you. So, what is a wormcount, how do you do one and what do the results mean?

In order to know how worming products work itís best to understand how worms themselves operate internally and externally. There are various types of worms that can infest your pets; both dogs and cats can get worms and pass them between each other. Itís important to implement a regular worming programme for your pets so they can maintain a healthy inside.

With lungworm becoming more prevalent in the UK I'm more worried about that than anything else. Once you see the signs of lungworm - coughing, shortness of breath being two it's often to late to do anything about it.

Lungworm is on the increase in the UK. Itís an insidious parasite which can be fatal if left to its own devices.If you suspect your dog has lungworm take him or her to the vet, asap. If you want to check for the presence of lungworm eggs, you can do a worm egg count specifically for lungworm to establish the need to worm or not.

Here's a great guest blogging article from our friends from Verm-X
You can't move at the moment for pictures of cute puppies looking at snails on their artificial chewy bones. The consequence of this multimedia onslaught is that I'm frequently asked what the actual risk of getting disease from lungworm, Angiostrongylus vasorum, is. I didn't have any accurate figures, so I thought I'd do some research.

Customers ask me ďdoes Verm-X really work?Ē and I say, in a word, yes. I donít say that because I sell it, I say it because itís true.
I know your dog is handsome, Iím sure heís the George Clooney of his species. But parasites donít go on looks. This article is about how you can make your dog the least attractive prospect in the room to parasites and do it herbally, using Verm-X for dogs, and avoiding conventional purging treatments.
