There are 4 main intestinal worms that dogs and cats are susceptible to, they are, Hookworm, Whipworm, Roundworm and Tapeworm

  • Then every 3 months for life



Fleas are very irritating for dogs and cats and can end up going on to cause other problems such as skin infections from animals biting themselves.

Fleas don’t live on animals, they only spend a short period of time on animals to feed, then live in the environment and surrounds that your pet live in. If you even see 1 flea on your pet, there are quite a few around. Generally, you will see what is called flea dirt on your pet, which looks like small flecks of black dirt, generally in the groin areas, base of the tail, paws and ears are the common areas fleas like.

There are many Prevention options available that can help prevent fleas which continuing treatment is strongly recommended
