Fleas, ticks and worms are very common for pets in London and the UK. These external and internal parasites can cause discomfort (to you as well as your pet!), ill health and in rare cases potentially life-threatening complications.
This is particularly true of canine lungworm which is transmitted via slugs and snails – this is a relatively new disease in the UK and can exhibit no symptoms until it is too late for treatment.
