Ticks, fleas and worms are a very common condition for dogs and cats to suffer with. These external and internal parasites can cause a range of annoyances for both you and your pet including discomfort, ill health and in more serious and rare cases, potentially life-threatening complications.
Canine lungworm is a particularly dangerous 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.
