When and how often should I deworm my dog?

Deworming is crucial to your dog’s health. Dogs in Nepal tend to suffer from internal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, heartworms, tapeworms and other infections. As a result your dog will have poor and stunted growth, allergies and skin diseases, rough coat and anaemia. Dogs should be dewormed from the age of 30 days. Till the dog is 6 months old repeat every 6 weeks. Above 6 months repeat every 3 months.

If the animal is found in the southern part of the valley contact Animal Nepal at 9841 334537. Be prepared to stay with the animal until we arrive, and make sure it cannot run away. If the animal is located in Kathmandu contact Kathmandu Animal Treatment Centre at +977 1 4373169.

You can also check out our First Aid for Dogs brochure. If you can provide (temporary) housing have the animal checked up by a vet and take care of it at your residence. If the animal is taken to a shelter make sure you check on the animal regularly and help to rehabilitate it back unto the street if it cannot be given up for adoption. Remember that taking care of Nepal’s disadvantages animals is everyone’s responsibility!
