Q.

DEWORMING

How often should I deworm my son. He is 21 months old now and do not have worms yet, but should I do it as a precaution every couple of months, and if so, what is the best product to give him.

We advise kids of 2-5yrs to be dewormed every 12 months (every 6 months if they live in a heavily infested area).
