All animals are at risk from acquiring worm infections however some animals will be at
higher risk than others depending on factors such as your lifestyle and area in which you live.
Children are at increased risk of disease from worms; if you have a young family or your pets often come into contact with children, you should pay particular attention to regularly worming your pets.
All animals are recommended to be wormed a minimum of every 3 months,
however there are some situations where we recommend worming more frequently:
• PUPPIES AND KITTENS • HUNTING CATS • SCAVENGING DOGS •
• ANIMALS REGULARLY COMING INTO CONTACT WITH CHILDREN •
• FARM DOGS, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN WALES AND THE HEBRIDES •
• ANIMALS THAT ARE NOT REGULARLY FLEA TREATED • PETS TRAVELLING ABROAD •
Worm your cat or dog at least every 3 months Use a quality wormer broad spectrum wormer Treat puppies monthly until 6 months old Scavengers may need more frequent treatment Spot on treatments are available for difficult cats.
We strongly recommend having your pet microchipped.
A small chip about the size of a grain of rice is injected beneath the skin. It is a quick and relatively painless procedure that should last a lifetime. A chip also provides vital identification even if they lose their collar.
This procedure is performed when you cat is neutered at around 5 - 6 months of age. A chip also provides vital identification even if they lose their collar and can also be used to control entry via cat flaps.
Rabbits, Guinea Pigs & Ferrets Microchip
A microchip provides identification in case your pet goes missing.
*£12.50 if booked in whilst having another procedure.
