Useful Tips

to keep your pet parasite-free

  • Stop fleas moving into your house

    Regularly treat all cats, dogs and rabbits with an appropriate preventative product and clean your pets bedding to stop fleas moving into your house. Also remember to seal and discard vacuum bags or clean your hoover, and treat the whole house with a veterinary recommended spray as directed.

  • Pets that hunt or scavenge

    Most pets are at risk from tapeworm, but some more so than others. If your pet regularly hunts or scavenges, you should treat them more frequently. Make sure to keep them free from fleas as they can also transmit tapeworm.

  • Preventing roundworm infections

    Try to stop your dog from sniffing or eating other animal’s poo or eating soil, and as Roundworm can also be transmitted to humans, remember to wash your hands regularly.

  • Removing and preventing ticks

    If you spot a tick remove it promptly using a tick hook, and if your dog or cat spends frequent time in long grass or woodland, consider using a treatment to repel and kill ticks.

  • Lungworm in dogs

    Regular preventative treatment should be considered if you frequently see slugs or snails in your area. Slugs and snails are on the increase and dogs can swallow these accidentally. Speak to your vet for more advice.

  • Biting lice warning signs in dogs

    Lice may be seen in young or debilitated animals so keep a close eye on your dog. Regular check-ups will ensure if your dog does have lice, they can be spotted and then treated promptly.

  • Ear Mites & Mange Mites

    If your dog or cat has them you should treat all in contact animals, and clean and disinfect the surrounding areas including all bedding.

  • The travelling heartworm

    Heartworm is not found in the UK and is normally only an issue when travelling abroad. Speak to your vet about using a product to prevent heartworm and also consider protecting your pet from mosquitoes, which transmit the heartworm larvae.
