There is a connection between fleas and worming, fleas are often infected with a larval stage of the flea tapeworm, if your dog swallows an infected flea a worm may develop in the gut, which is a good reason to worm with prazitel Plus.
A dog infected with worms may show some symptoms like irritation of the bottom , which is a sign of tapeworm problems, dragging the bottom across the ground could be your dog’s way of telling you their may be a problem. There are a few other signs such as: vomiting, a dull coat, a lack of vitality, perhaps they are off their food or a pot bellied appearance, which would be more common in puppies. If your dog is showing any behaviour you are not absolutely certain about we would suggest you contact your vet as soon as possible. However these signs are not always common, and in the early stages of infection possibly non existent, in fact dogs infected with worms may be showing no signs at all. This is why we suggest worming your dog with products such as Prazitel Plus every three months.
