Fleas and Worms in Your Pet

Fleas are quite common in pets and we advise regular treatments to prevent fleas. Flea infestations can lead to significant skin irritation and predispose to “Flea Allergic Dermatitis”. Fleas also play an important part in the transmission of tapeworms, which is another reason to maintain good flea and worm control.

Ticks are most prevalent during Spring to Autumn in Scotland. They are important to protect against as they can pass on serious diseases to your cat such as Lymes Disease.

Worming in Cats – Regular worming treatment is very important in kittens. We recommend worming kittens once a month until they are 6 months old and then once every three months after that for life.

Worming is not only important for your cat, it is also important for people as children, in particular, can become infected with dog roundworms, which in serious cases can result in blindness.

We recommend using products that are effective against eggs, larvae and adult round worms, hookworms, tapeworms and whipworms.
