Parasite control in dogs and puppies

Common parasites that affected cats and kittens in the UK are: 

  • External parasites (live on the skin or fur) - Fleas and ticks 
  • Internal Parasites (live inside the pet) - Roundworm, tapeworm and lungworm 

Different drugs are required to tackle each type of parasite, so a combined product is often easier that tackles several or all of the parasites in a single dose. 

Puppies nearly always have significant roundworm infestations which is a risk to the health of the puppy AND any humans they are in contact with. Regular monthly roundworm treatment is essential for kittens. 

Parasite control is discussed on an individual basis as the risks to your pet and family vary depending on the lifestyle of the pet. 

The Langford Club provides year-round flea, tick prevention and worming treatment.
