Parasite Control

BaronsCourtVets_ParasiteControl_ForWebsite

Choosing the best parasite control for your pet depends on his or her lifestyle. We provide individually tailored advice to make sure you are getting the best possible treatment available.

We generally recommend all dogs and cats who go outside are treated monthly with Advocate™ and bi-annually with a combined worming treatment such as Milbemax™ or Panacur™.

For cats who are difficult to give pills or require protection from ticks we recommend Broadline™. This is a single application flea tick and worm treatment.

For dogs who swim regularly, or live with small children where topical treatments may cause difficulty or are at risk from ticks, we recommend a monthly tablet called Nexguard™.

For dogs who are travelling abroad and are at risk of ticks, mosquitoes and sand-flies we recommend Vectra™ to give protection from the transmission of babesiosis, heart worm and leishmaniasis. We also recommend vaccination against Lymes Disease and Leishamnaisis with Merrily™ and CaniLeash™.

For advice or more information about the best parasite control for your pet pop into the surgery and one of our team will be happy to help you find the right treatment.
