Hi doc, how often should adults be dewormed?

Dear Pam
If you have puppies in the house, about once in 6 months. Most worms are transmitted via contact with contaminated soil or animal poo - if you don't work in soil regularly and have no contact with animal poo regular deworming is not really necessary. Children need deworming 6 monthly - especially toddlers.
