Worm Prevention

For the long-term health and wellbeing of your pet and your family, it is essential that you routinely use proven, preventative treatments against the most common parasites throughout your pet’s life. Remember that prevention is much easier and cost effective than cure.

Cats and dogs pick up worms from their mothers, other pets, eating slugs and snails and by coming into contact with the faeces of other animals. Local parks and areas dogs come together are particularly contaminated.

Flea and Worm Treatment For Your Cat - MetroVet in Wood Green LondonThere are several types of worms including roundworm, tapeworm, whipworm and hookworm. All these will cause disease ranging from weight loss to severe life-threatening diarrhoea. Roundworm, and some types of tapeworm, can be passed on to people, particularly children, and can cause disease and even blindness.

Our staff will talk you through the problem and recommend products to help control theses problems. We have a wide range of drugs available to us, many that you cannot buy over the counter from shops, to help us choose the most suitable for you and your pet. In addition if you have any problems in administering these products we are more than happy to do this for you.

Please be aware that many products available elsewhere other than sold at MetroVet may be ineffective at treating all the species of worms and fleas your pet could get. There are many ranges of worming treatments available including tablets, liquids, granules and spot-ons.

Hazards in our local community in Wood Green

Fleas, worms and other parasites can be caught at parks local to MetroVet.

Parks are a breeding ground for parasites, especially in the warmer months from April to October. As a pet owner, you do not want to deprive your beloved pet of the chance to make friends, and you certainly do not want to limit the opportunity to be outside. But, if it seems like all the other pets are itching, scratching and playing with slugs and other parasite carriers, what is a pet owner to do?
