Flea and Worm Treatments
Regular parasite prevention is an important part of your pet’s routine healthcare throughout their lives. Here at Zetland Veterinary Group we provide a wide range of different types of products which can be tailored to suit your individual pet’s needs.
Flea treatment for dogs
Dogs should be treated once every 4 weeks for fleas and mites and some may need additional tick control if they are exposed to ticks. Ticks are not only unsightly but also carry disease such as Lyme disease.
Our most popular product is a monthly ‘spot-on’ treatment for dogs. It provides protection from fleas, biting lice, ear and skin mites, roundworms and the potentially deadly parasite lungworm that can be passed on to dogs from slugs & snails and their slime trails. Other products are also available in collar and tablet formulations for dogs.
Worm treatment for dogs
Adult dogs need worming for roundworms and tapeworms every 3 months. In addition, puppies need worming monthly for roundworms until 6 months old. Wormers come in tablet formulations for dogs, these should be used alongside the combined flea & round wormer ‘spot-on’ treatments.
Some of our products are prescription only medications, meaning we can only dispense them to your pet if they have been seen by a vet within the last year. We offer Free Flea Checks with our veterinary surgeons where they will give your pet a health check and dispense a product suitable for your pet. You will only be charged for the flea and worming product. It is vital we know your pet’s current weight as our flea & wormer treatment dosages are based on your pets weight.
