Fleas are the major cause of skin disease and irritation to dogs and cats. In addition they are the intermediate hosts of tapeworms.
Control of these pests consists of two phases:
- Preventative treatment of pets.
- Eradication of fleas from the environment.
There are a wide variety of flea treatment products available, please call us or drop into either practice, and we will recommend the latest and most effective products that are suitable for your pets. Please be aware that many of the most effective products are prescription-only medications, so we have to have seen your pet within the last year to enable us to prescribe these.
