Protect your pet from deadly parasites by deworming them regularly.
When most people hear about worms, they imagine the ones that come out after it rains. But as a pet owner, you know worms are deadly for your loyal companion. Your pet can have various types of worms, such as heartworms, ringworms, hookworms, or whipworms. This is why cats and dogs need to have deworming every year. At Port Elgin Veterinary Clinic, we are experts at protecting your pet from worms and treating them if they become infected. To schedule a deworming appointment for your pet, please call us at 519-389-2020.

Our clinic will perform tests to accurately diagnose the type of worm your pet has and then create a treatment plan.

In severe cases, if a pet has a high number of intestinal worms, they may need surgery to remove them.
