Worming and Fleas

Worming

Roundworms are the main type of worms that infect dogs and cats.The majority of pets will show no signs of infection but poor coat condition, weight loss and digestive upsets have been attributed to their presence.

The roundworm egg is potentially hazardous to humans, especially young children, if they are ingested. So, regular worming is an essential component of public health if we are to reduce environmental contamination and thereby reduce the risk to our children.

Fleas

The presence of fleas on your pet is certainly not something to be ashamed of, as their presence in no way reflects on your household or your pets’ hygiene but on the tremendous ability of this parasite to survive on a variety of hosts and in the environment.

The failure to find a flea on your pet does not mean they are not there and therefore I would suggest you try the ‘wet white paper test’ to detect the presence of flea dirt.

If positive (red-brown spots develop on the paper), this confirms the presence of adult fleas

To adequately treat for fleas you must be treating all year round and be, not only treating your pet but also the environment.
