Q.

Deworming

Hi

Is is necessary to deworm my 10 month old? We have small dogs that she often plays with. There are no indications that she does have worms but wondering if it should be done as a precautionary measure. If so, do I just use Vermox?

Thanks!

There is no indication for de-worming your baby yet. Vermox is not usually given to babies less that 1 year old.
