Fleas & Worms
Nobody likes their pet to bring home uninvited guests!
There are many preparations available for the prevention and treatment of flea and worm infestations. We stock a range of products and our vets are always happy to discuss with you which would be the most appropriate for your pets: for example, does your dog rummage in litter bins? Will your cat shred the curtains if you try to give her a tablet? Do you have foxes in your garden? Parasite control should also include treatment of your home - this can be done yearly with Indorex (a household spray) and a good vaccuum.
Generally, we recommend that cats and dogs are wormed every 3 - 6 months and de-flea'd every 1 - 2 months, depending on the pet and the product used. Please contact the surgery for specific advice.
