In our opinion Milbemycin with praziquantel is the most effective single line treatment you can use to prevent or treat all worms in your cat or dog. It is also licensed to prevent lung worm in dogs. The packaging is Blippable. Blippar is a market-leading image-recognition and augmented reality platform with the power to bring dispensing packaging to life using the camera in a smart device. To activate the technology simply download the free Blippar app and scan the front of the pack or dispensing envelope. The pack then becomes animated, giving you access to accurate, regulated post-dispensing content using educational videos, a built-in reminder system and other product information, all appearing on the pack itself.
Remember—the main reason we worm pets is for public health.
Don’t even consider using less effective and possibly dangerous alternatives from other sources. And remember, cost per day, our preventive health products are generally cheaper than any inferior pet shop or supermarket alternative.
YOU CAN MAKE A FREE APPOINTMENT TO SEE THE VET TO DISCUSS PRESCRIPTION WORM CONTROL AND PREVENTION
OTHER FLEA CONTROL PRODUCTS AND PREVENTION
Be very careful with certain supermarket or petshop products, some of which have questionable efficacy and can be dangerous, even fatal in cats, small dogs, kittens and puppies. Other products may be a lot more effective but need to be used in the correct circumstances; for or example there is little benefit from treating just your pet when the carpets are full of eggs, larvae and adult fleas. Speak to us and get the best advice for a treatment or prevention regime in your household.
As the year rolls on fleas will be busy mating and the female will potentially be laying 80 to 100 eggs in your carpets each day unless you maintain a good programme of prevention. We can offer you advice on what products may best suit your situation (Is there a current flea problem? Do you have cats or dogs or both? and so on). They say this will be the worst summer ever for fleas!
The more modern products, made by a reputable manufacturer, are usually the safest and best to use.
Cardalis is a revolutionary combination drug we use in dogs as part of the treatment for congestive cardiac failure. We have a loyalty scheme for this – 6th month of treatment is free of charge. If your dog is already on treatment for heart failure we will discuss Cardalis with you at your next routine check up consultation.
Does your pet cough regularly through the day? Less exercise tolerance (not able to walk as far without getting tired)? Breathe Heavily? Swollen abdomen? Then one cause could be heart disease. If you have any doubts please make an appointment to see the Veterinary Surgeon to assess.

Is your cat looking unkempt, not grooming, losing weight but eating a lot, drinking excessively and having episodes of diarrhoea? Then it may have an over-active thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism is really common in cats over the age of 10. At the Senior Club we may help identify this and other health conditions long before they become a serious problem for your Pet.
The Puppy, Kitten and Junior Clubs will offer you all you need to know about looking after your baby pets through their teens into adulthood covering basic training, preventive health, neutering, grooming, nutrition and so on.
