It can be extremely easy for pets to become infected with worms. Some puppies and kittens are even infected from birth or from their mother’s milk while adults can become infected simply through coming into contact with contaminated ground.
Worms can cause a wide range of symptoms including vomiting, diarrhoea and weight loss. But the risks are not limited to pets as young children and pregnant women in particular are also susceptible to certain types of worm infection which can lead to potentially serious complications such as blindness.
At Aylesbury Vets our aim is to decrease and prevent the risk of these infestations. We can reduce the likelihood of this happening by putting in place regular and effective worming programmes tailored to your pet and their lifestyles and by offering advice on reducing the risk of contamination from the environment and how to minimise contamination of the environment.
Lungworm is a less frequent problem in the local area, but increasingly so in many parts of the UK, can cause a wide range of symptoms from mild weight loss, coughing, to clotting problems and can even be fatal.
We’re here to advise you on the risks and how best to implement preventative treatment and management.
With regular reminders we can help ensure your pet is kept up to date with preventative treatment and our health plans can reduce the ongoing cost of protecting your pet.
