How often should I worm my cat?
Your cats should be wormed 2-4 times per year depending on how much they go out or hunt, or if they have fleas, as these little pests carry an intermediate stage of one of the tapeworms. We can worm your cat in the surgery with a single dose tablet.
What flea products should I use?
We advise a spot-on preparation such as Advocate if your cat goes outside or if you are finding fleas. If you wish to prevent fleas breeding in the house you can use Program, given to your cat either monthly by mouth or as a 6-monthly injection which can be given in one of the nurse or vet clinics. If you have a lot of fleas and flea eggs in the house, Indorex household spray is effective for up to 12 months. Cost is often an issue with these products - prescription medicines are always a bit more than over-the-counter ones, but they work and are therefore more cost-effective. Come in and talk to us about them.
