Flea, Tick and Worm Treatment

Providing regular flea, tick, and worm treatment for your pets is a common service at our practice, and we have a wealth of knowledge and experience on the best treatments for your pet.


Fleas, ticks, and worms are a very common condition for your furry friends to suffer with. These external and internal parasites can cause a range of annoyances for you and your pet such as discomfort, ill health, and life-threatening complications in more serious and rare cases.  


Fleas are small parasites that live on your pet’s body and then feed off their blood. They can be picked up from other animals, as well as from the natural environment when you are out and about. Their eggs can also live for long periods of time in carpets and soft furnishings. Fleas are extremely common, and unfortunately most pets do suffer from them at some point.


Ticks are also small parasites that feed off the blood of other animals. They are most commonly found between spring and autumn in wooded and grassy areas, but they can be active throughout the year. Ticks climb or drop onto animals, using their mouthparts to attach themselves. They’ll feed on a host for a few days and drop off once they have consumed enough blood.


Worms in pets are usually intestinal parasites. The most common types of worms are roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms.  

There is also lungworm, which lives in the respiratory system. Canine lungworm is a particularly dangerous and potentially fatal parasite that is transmitted via slugs and snails. The disease is relatively new in the UK and can exhibit no symptoms until it is too late to treat effectively. This is why prevention of these parasites is incredibly important for the health of your pets.

We want to provide maximum safety for your pet and maximum convenience for you, so we use our expert knowledge and experience to recommend exactly what products to use.  

Recommended flea, tick and worm treatment

The products that we recommended depend on the species of your animal and their lifestyle. There are a wide range of pet flea, tick, and worm treatment products available today, so knowing the right one to choose can be confusing. 

At our practice in Kensington, we will only prescribe licensed treatments, so you can rest assured that they will work effectively to get rid of whatever parasite your pet is dealing with.
