Flea and worm treatment
Keeping up to date with flea and worm treatment is an important part of preventative healthcare for your pet.
Flea bites can cause itchiness and discomfort as well transmitting other parasites, such as tapeworm. Some animals can become allergic to flea bites, resulting in severe itching and hair loss, called flea allergic dermatitis.
Heavy worm infestations can cause illness in dogs, and intestinal worms can be passed to humans, so it is particularly important to worm your dog regularly if you have small children. Puppies are more susceptible to worms than adult dogs, so it is recommended to worm them frequently.
