Types of pet parasites

Fleas can lay up to 50 eggs per day so you could have an infestation before you know it. They survive by drinking warm blood and when they ‘bite’ it will result in a sore, red, itchy bump; this is because flea saliva is an allergen.  

More fleas on your pet equals more bites, which in extreme cases can cause anaemia and even death. Fleas can affect other pets and your human family and can be difficult to get rid of in your home. Therefore, regular vet-recommended, preventative flea treatments are vital. 


Worms are commonly picked up when your pet swallows fleas containing worm eggs. Some worms can be harmful to both pets and humans. Lungworm in dogs is particularly nasty and can be fatal for them. Regular pet worming treatments are essential and can be done alongside flea treatments. Talk to us about how often to worm your pet. 


Ticks are blood-sucking critters that are most prevalent during warmer months but can be problematic all year round in certain locations.  

They must be removed as soon as possible with a special tick removal tool as they can transmit Lyme disease. Therefore, it is important to check your dog, and you, for small bumps on the skin after walks – especially if you have been walking in long grass or fields where livestock and wildlife graze.  

Talk to our team about whether it is advisable to treat your pet against ticks.
