Worming Pregnant Bitches.


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

For those breeders that don't worm during pregnancy, can I ask why? Have you had a bad experience?

I have a 6week pregnant bitch, vet has advised to worm. Have heard mixed opinions from breeders on whether to worm or not.

A few days before mating & then not at all while pregnant.

I don't understand how hormones can influence worms ?

I thought they got them from fleas, raw meat or soil usually ?

Roundworm (and I think hookworm?) eggs can lie dormant until the later stages of pregnancy. Doesn't matter how much you worm them prior.
