There are many parasites that affect your pets and just because you don't always see them doesn't mean that your pet is safe. Parasites can cause irritation and can also spread certain diseases. There are three main groups of parasites that we recommend you protect your pet against routinely and these are:
- Worms including lungworm
Most of us pick up our new Puppy or Kitten when they are approximately 7 weeks old, and we should start considering how we are going to prevent from them being affected by these parasites right from this point, in order to safeguard their health and our own. As with any disease preventing is better than trying to treat it.
We use very safe and effective products that require a vet to have checked your pet before you can buy them. Your vet will advise which products your pet requires for its lifestyle but generally you will require at least two or three products to achieve this effectively. There is currently no one product that is effective against ear mites, lice and fox mange.
Let's not forget other types of pets as they may also require preventive parasite treatments - for example rabbits should have a treatment for the parasite Encephalatizoon Cuniculi two to four times a year; chicks should also be wormed and ferrets may need treatment for ear mites.
