The number and variety of parasites effecting 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 furnishing and between floorboards, without the pet, for up to 1 year. Lungworm has spread across the country to regions that it previously not been seen in and a recent report found ticks affected 1 in 3 dogs.
Call us to book your free flea and tick check where you will also get preventative treatment options and advice tailored to your pet’s specific needs.
To do this we take into account the local areas parasite make up, as well as your pet’s lifestyle to be able to best advise 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 diseases they carry.
