Keeping them healthy and protected from any external aggression is part of the tasks of any responsible owner. Something in which dog antiparasitics they are not, by far, a complement but fundamentally a necessity. One way to make our animal shielded against those insects and pests that can affect not only their well-being but, above all, their health. A good reason why, when choosing antiparasitic for dogs, we do it without hurry and knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each other.

While it is true that many times we remember this prophylaxis when the good weather approaches, we have to contemplate that dog dewormers have to be part of their year-round routine. Although we can believe that winter is a natural shield for our animals, the truth is that there are a good number of insects that can survive the cold and, therefore, be willing to compromise the health of our dog.

For this reason, and let's opt for the type of dog antiparasitic we choose, we have to carry a regular check of its applications, uses and expiration dates so that our pet is protected at all times without losing sight of one aspect: the importance of antiparasitics in spring and summer, the two most committed moments of the year.


Before opting for one of the many types of antiparasitic for dogs, it is important to know exactly what we have to protect. In this way and according to even where we live, we can choose the most suitable antiparasitic for the habitat in which our animal is going to develop.

The two most common pests at almost any point of our latitude are fleas and ticks. Two annoying insects that, beyond the uncomfortable stinging they can cause, can even be dangerous for both the dog and us.

On the one hand, fleas are one of the insects that more allergic reactions causes both in animals and in humans, so controlling them from the beginning is key to avoiding some of their side effects: hair loss, infection from aggravating bites and even fever. Added to these ailments is another that, in addition, will impact our home: The reproduction capacity of fleas is very high, so if you do not control their presence in our dog, the simplest thing is that we all end up, animals and humans, being carriers of these uncomfortable insects.

Ticks deserve a separate chapter. And we say this because the damage they cause, both in animals and in people, is even greater than in the case of fleas. They are responsible for transmitting the Lyme's desease: an infection that can even compromise our life or that of the animal. A good reason for our dog to have protection against them not only in summer, but throughout the year.

Linked to hot months or warmer climates during winter, we will also have to protect our dog from a more annoying mosquito: the cause of the leishmaniasis. Although its bite is only active when the thermometer rises, it is not to be taken lightly its effects on the health of our animal since the bite of the transmitting mosquito infects with a parasite that is impossible to eradicate. One that, although it can be treated and improve the quality of life of our dog, will always be part of your body. And as prevention is better than cure, the ideal is that we avoid infecting our dog by ensuring their welfare and using dog dewormers.

Finally and in addition to external aggressions, we will have to contemplate fighting against internal parasites. Some that are, fundamentally, of intestinal character and that we will have to palliate with regular deworming every three months if we want to take care of their health but, also, that of the human members of our family.
