Dog Parasites are a threat for your pets and could affect you too. Treatment needs to be Regular and all year round. From a Flea egg to mature egg laying adult is only 14 days! So forget treatment for a month and you can have a real problem in your house. Wintertime eggs can still be laying around for many months and suddenly hatch, so best be safe.
We can simply divide them in internal dog parasites (typically tapeworms and roundworms) and external dog parasites (typically fleas, ticks, etc). All dogs, not just pups, can be affected by parasites in some stage of their life, so we must keep treating our pets regularly to prevent an infestation, or stop it in its tracks. This is particularly true with animals living outdoors or frequently in contact with other animals.
Some of these parasites love to hitch a ride on us humans, but Adults are usually not affected too much by them. Children however are very different and many parasites, particularly worms not only love children, but can do alot of damage.
Its very important you get Dog Parasite and Worming treatments from a Vet Clinic like Paw Paws as many of the supermarket brands only kill some parasites, or may kill none as we and our new clients find very often. So don’t waste your money on cheap alternatives as you might as well tear up fivers!
Routine, easy to use, treatment is available in our clinic for all type of parasites in tablet, liquid and spot-on form. Typical cost about €15 per month or only €3 per week to cover everything, so less than the cost of a bag of chips per week!
