Q How of­ten should I be de-worm­ing my dog? MARGERY SAVILL, A RICH­MOND, NSW. Dogs should be wormed ev­ery three months with an all­wormer for in­testi­nal worms. Try to do it at the change of sea­son so it’s easy to re­mem­ber. Heart­worm pre­ven­tion can be monthly or you can get a yearly in­jec­tion. Pup­pies need worm­ing more fre­quently, start­ing with ev­ery two weeks un­til they’re 3 months old, monthly un­til they’re 6 months old, then three-monthly for life. Try a chew­able wormer and your pup will think it’s a treat!
