Q.

deworming

Good day!
We''ve recently moved and now we have a dog and lots of yard space for my 20mtnh old boy to play, he loves playing with the dog and in the sand now. He''s never been dewormed, should i start now, he''ll be going to creche in the new year too. If so, which syrup would you suggest?
Thanking you.

Yes, it is now time to deworm your little son. You should repeat this de-worming every six months until he is about 4 years old.Vermox is recommended. The dose is 5ml twice a day for 3 days.
