Parasite Control

We can advise on the best products and routines to keep your cat healthy, happy and free from pests.

Dogs can be infested with roundworms and tapeworms, with roundworms being especially common.

Both can pose a threat to human health, especially to children.

In this area we also see a significant amount of lungworm infection. Lungworm is a roundworm that affects dogs and if left untreated, can be fatal.

It is advised by the British Veterinary Association that dogs be wormed against roundworm monthly. The easiest way to do this is to combine it with a flea spot on.

Treatment against tapeworm should take place every three months, and is usually done with a tablet.

Please feel free to discuss treatment with one of our vets. Our flea and worm check-up is FREE.
