PROTECTING YOUR PET

Learn why it’s important to protect your pet against fleas, ticks and worms.

Dogs

Cats

Active dogs are at risk from picking up fleas and ticks

Ticks are a risk in urban parks and gardens too.

Fleas and ticks can transmit tapeworm and Lyme Disease.

Fleas and ticks are not just a problem in spring and summer; warmer, wetter winters mean that ticks are active all year and fleas can readily survive indoors in centrally heated homes.

There are a wide range of treatments options available, including tasty chews that you can give like a treat; ideal for dogs that like to go swimming as they can’t be washed off. Some products last for up to 12 weeks, meaning fewer treatments and less stress.

Even if your cat is mostly indoor, they can still get fleas even in your garden.

Cats who come into contact with fleas are at risk of developing skin infections from scratching.

Fleas can transmit diseases, including tapeworm, cat scratch fever and feline infectious anaemia.

Fleas and ticks are not just a problem in spring and summer; warmer, wetter winters mean that ticks are active all year and fleas can readily survive indoors in centrally heated homes.

WHY GO TO YOUR VET?

Wondering why you should visit your vet for parasite protection and advice? Here’s why:

  • Expert advice: Disease risks constantly evolve, and your vet and vet nurse are best placed to give up-to-date advice about the risks for your pet, and what you need to do to provide the best possible preventative care.
  • Longer lasting treatments: Recently launched products could offer many benefits for you and your pet. For example, some newer products last for up to 12 weeks, meaning fewer doses to remember and more convenience for you.
  • Easy to administer products: Some newer products are also easier to give. For example, tasty chews make treating dogs easier, and packaging innovations make newer spot-on treatments quicker and less messy to apply to cats and dogs.

Due to licensing requirements for animal medicines, these latest innovations are usually only available from your vet, so make sure you and your pet don’t miss out.
