By regularly worming your cat (we recommend every three months) you will be preventing parasite infestations which can cause diarrhoea, anaemia and general unthriftiness.
We can prescribe tablets, granules(which you can mix into the food) or spot on formulations (for those cats that are medicate orally) which are effective against gastro-intestinal roundworms, hookworm, whipworms, tapeworms and heartworm.
Cats are commonly affected by fleas which can easily be treated and prevented form coming back by spot on formulations which we can prescribe.
Some people find spot on formulations difficult to apply, for these cats we can give an injection that will stop the flea eggs from developing properly. This does not kill the adults but makes them infertile - thus controlling the flea population.
If your cat does have fleas then we recommend to treat your home as well as your pet. This is because fleas will lay eggs on your pet but these will fall from their coat and into the environment - and as a female flea can lay between 30 and 40 eggs in 1 day that's up to 200 eggs in you home in just 5 days.
If your pet has fleas please don't be embarrassed as it is a very common problem - just give us a call and we will be happy to help.
