Parasite prevention for dogs, cats & other pets

Prevention is key when it comes to controlling parasites on and in your pet. Fleas, worms, and ticks don’t just cause animals discomfort; they can also affect your human family and spread harmful conditions.

We recommend you should regularly treat your pet for parasites, even if they don’t have them. Talk to us about the flea & worm treatments and tick control methods that are available for your pet.

Travelling abroad with your dog?

Your dog will require tapeworm treatment before re-entering the UK. Our team can advise you on this. See our Pet Travel services.

 

All-year-round flea & worm protection

Fleas multiply at an alarming rate and can spread harmful diseases to your pet, and your human family. A flea infestation in your home can be difficult to get rid of.

You should also protect your pet from heartworm, hookworm, roundworm, whipworm, and lungworm, which is often fatal and easily picked up from infected slugs and snails.

For the best parasite prevention for dogs and cats, you should apply vet-recommended flea & worm treatments regularly. These can vary from monthly spot-on pipettes or chewable tablets, to 3 to 6-month tablets. Our team can advise you on the best flea and worm treatments for your pet, so give us a call.

 

Tick protection

Ticks are typically more active in warmer months but can be problematic all year round. They are mostly found in woods and grassy areas where the animals they feed on live and roam, such as deer, rabbits, birds, lizards, squirrels, mice, and other rodents. However, they can also be found in coastal areas on beaches, and in urban areas too. Ticks can transmit Lyme disease, a debilitating condition for dogs and humans.

Some flea & worm treatments include tick protection, and you can also get tick collars.

We recommended owners feel for small bumps on their dog’s skin (and their own) after walks and if there a tick, never pull it straight out. Special tick removal tools are available. Ask us about tick protection and removal.

Cats are less likely to pick up a tick than dogs, but it can happen. Therefore, it is worth checking your cat’s skin after their outdoor adventures between late spring and early autumn.
