Dog Owner Survey

Surveyed dog owners prefer 360-degree protection

Survey Details

More than 2,000 U.S. dog owners were surveyed for parasite awareness, knowledge and level of concern, as well as product coverage, cost, convenience and more.

Concerned about tapeworms and whipworms :

  • Tapeworms had the second highest unaided awareness of worms among surveyed dog owners, second only to heartworms.1
  • More than half of surveyed dog owners aware of intestinal worms considered tapeworms and whipworms a health threat to their dog.1
  • 37% of surveyed dog owners were concerned their dog could be infected with tapeworms, which was only 6% less than those concerned about heartworm infection.1
