PET OWNERS

  • With the warm weather, you should be thinking about flea control for your pets. Our teams are trained in flea control to assist you with choosing the right product for your pet and we offer a great deal of knowledge around flea treatment. For pets who don’t appreciate topical preparations, there are tablet preparations that offer excellent flea control as well.

  • Warmer weather also means that cats will be coming into season. With female cats in season, this means the tom cats will start fighting over them. This will in turn cause issues with cats getting bitten, and the bites can turn into nasty abscesses. There is an increased risk of Feline Aids being transmitted through cat bites, and even your pet cat is at risk if he/she gets in the way of a cat fight. To stop the problem of unwanted litters of kittens, and the risk of Feline Aids, we strongly recommend that all male and female cats are desexed.

  •  Adult dogs and cats should be wormed routinely every month. Unfortunately, not all worming products are created equally. We urge you to use a veterinary endorsed product for maximum effectiveness against internal parasites- some of which can infect humans!
