Worming and flea treatment

It is important to protect your dog from internal parasites such as tapeworms, roundworms and lungworms, and external parasites such as fleas, ticks and mites.

Our Vets and Nurses are happy to discuss an appropriate parasite prevention protocol for your dog. We offer free 'Weigh and Worm' consultations with a Nurse for this purpose. The only charge we make is for the medication.

Please make an appointment if you would like to provide your dog with a high quality parasite prevention plan using prescription products.
