Intestinal parasite control is often overlooked as pets get older but I believe it is still vitally important. Recently an eldeley dog developed black coloured droppings, this is never a good symptom and is often casued by intestinal bleeding. A faecal test confirmed the presence of blood and hookworm eggs. This dog had regularly been getting an appropriate dose of a supermarket wormer. The problem is that supermarket wormers have usually lost their efficacy years ago i.e. worms have developed resisitance. Please use high qulaity wormers – available from Veterinarians.
