Worms are intestinal parasites that can cause disease especially in young animals.
Main symptoms include anorexia, diarrhoea, vomiting, dull coat, weight loss and pot-bellied appearance. Sometimes worms can actually be seen in the faeces. Some of the species of worms can also crossover and also infest people. Treating our pets for worms reduces the risk of our families getting worms.
Our clinics stock many types of worming products for different needs. If your cat or dog is impossible to pill we have a spot-on and syrup products. If you have a bird, no worries, we stock bird worming products too.
Puppies and kittens should be wormed from 2 weeks of age fortnightly until they are 12 weeks old then wormed every 3 monthly thereafter. Ensure you get an accurate weight on your cat or dog to be able to give the correct dose.
A common viral disease, which is highly infectious and can often be fatal. It causes shock, vomiting, and bloody diarrhoea. The diarrhoea can contain millions of infective viral particles which can be easily spread in the environment. The virus can potentially survive in the environment for up to a year.
This is usually severe and causes death. Clinical signs are fever, respiratory disease with coughing, vomiting, diarrhoea, and nervous signs.
An often fatal disease spread by infected faeces, urine, and saliva. Clinical signs are fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, and clouding of the eyes.
A highly contagious respiratory disease caught by coming in contact with an infected dog. Dogs kept at boarding kennels and shelters are at high risk, as are dogs going to grooming shops, dog shows and dog parks. It can lead to severe coughing.
An infectious disease picked up from rats or from a carrier dog. It can often be a fatal disease which affects the kidneys and liver.
We use a core vaccine that covers for Feline Panleucopaenia. This causes a Parvo-like disease in cats, and can lead to death. The other two viral respiratory diseases are also in this vaccine. These cause cat flu/snuffles, a highly infectious, debilitating disease, which can lead to a number of chronic diseases.
Feline AIDs vaccine
This is a non core vaccine. It is used as an aid to preventing this debilitating immunosuppressive disease, risks versus benefits can be discussed with the Vet.
A fatal infectious viral disease that causes sudden death in rabbits.
