Deworming of dogs
All puppies have worms, including yours. They get the worms from their mother. First through the uterus and lateron through the milk and the mouth of the mother. Unlike what a lot of people think, you mostly don’t see when a dog has worms, and they don’t have to get sick either. But these worms secrete larvae that can be dangerous for the public health. Especially kids can be very sensitive to these larvae. After research it became clear that there’s a relation between the larvae and asthma in kids.
