The number and variety of parasites affecting pets in the UK has changed substantially over recent years. Thanks to modern-day living with central heating, flea pupae can survive dormant in carpets, soft furnishings and between floorboards, without the pet, for up to 1 year. Lungworm has spread across the country to regions that it previously had not been seen in and a recent report found that ticks affected 1 in every 3 dogs.
Call us to book your free flea and tick check and advice appointment with one of our nursing team, where you will also receive preventative treatment options and advice - tailored to your pet’s specific needs. Please note there are non prescription preventative products that can be sold at this free check but we may recommend longer acting or wider spectrum products that will need a full paid health examination with one of the veterinary team depending on your requirements.
To do this, we take into account the local area's parasite make up, as well as your pet’s lifestyle, to be able to best advise you on the most suitable products. For example, does your dog swim regularly? Is your cat an indoor-only cat? Do your pets hunt or scavenge? The answers to these and other questions will help us to determine the most suitable parasite preventative care plan to keep your pet, family and home free from parasites, and the awful diseases they carry.
