Intestinal Worms In Cats & Dogs
Regular worming is an essential part of good pet ownership. Intestinal worms live in the gastrointestinal system of cats and dogs and include hookworm, roundworm, whipworm and tapeworm. They can cause severe diarrhoea and disease, especially in puppies and kittens.
Usually, worming is done with a simple tablet or drops on the neck. Contact us to find out what products are the best for your pet.
Heartworm Prevention in Dogs
Heartworm is the disease that nightmares are made of! Spread by mosquitoes, the worms can grow up to 30cm long and become lodged in your dog’s heart, eventually causing heart failure and death. Prevention of heartworm is one of the most important things you must do for your dog – treating and curing heartworm can be difficult, expensive and can be unsuccessful.
Note that intestinal “all wormer” tablets do NOT protect against heartworm. We recommend an annual injection for your dog to protect against heartworm, but other products available include oral medication and a topical spot product.
