ALL PUPPIES & KITTENS HAVE ROUNDWORMS!
We recommend that your new pet is wormed for all worms every two weeks until 12 weeks old, then monthly until 6 months old. Worming is recommended every 3-6months for life as every pet will get worms at some point during their life which can cause various health problems.
Prevention is better than cure…
These is a bewildering array or anti-parasitic products on the market and we will be happy to give advice about the products most suited to your pet’s lifestyle. Flea treatment is advised to be given monthly to prevent a flea infestation on your pet and in your home.
Which skin parasites should I be concerned about?
Cats and dogs can be affected by a number of skin parasites including fleas, lice, mites that live on the skin or in ears and ticks. These can be contracted from other affected pets, from wildlife or from the environment (this includes your home if one of your pets has brought in fleas!). Signs can include itching (but not in all cases), hair loss, head shaking, reddening of the skin or even sightings of the parasites on your pet.
