Parasite Control

parasite-controlWe follow the British Small Animal Veterinary Association guidelines on parasite prevention. Parasite prevention in pets is extremely important, as there are significant public health implications as certain diseases affect humans and animals.

Your veterinary practice is the best source of advice and supply for the most effective treatments and preventatives that really work.

We offer a wide range of options for the treatment and prevention of external and internals parasites.

We like to consider the individual needs of each patient and their circumstances and risks when it comes to parasite control.

There are non prescription products available to purchase over the counter or from our on-line store but we do need to have examined your pet in order for the prescription products to be dispensed. Please ring for an appointment for your pet with a vet or nurse to discuss the most convenient and appropriate parasite prevention plan.
