How To Tackle and Prevent Fleas and Worms

Fleas and worms are the pesky irritations that come hand in hand with owning a fluffy pet. However, there are simple ways to treat a cat or dog with fleas, and prevent them from coming back - too often, at least!

Treating Fleas and Worms

If your pet has fleas or worms already, it is essential to use a fleas on dog treatment straight away. Leaving such a problem untreated can cause all sorts of more serious health problems, such as:

  • Skin irritations and rashes.
  • Scratching and itching.
  • Loss of weight and/or appetite.
  • Digestive issues.
  • Weakness and lack of energy

Many cat's flea treatments work on fleas and worms at the same time, making it easy and fast to treat!

Types of Flea Cats Treatment

There are multiple ways to deal with worms and fleas:

  • Flea collars
  • Solutions
  • Tablets

The right treatment for your dog with fleas will depend on their age, weight, breed and any other health conditions. 

Preventing Worms and Fleas

Prevention is always better than a cure, and fortunately, there are lots of things you can do to discourage the pests from returning! If you've treated your dog with fleas recently, it's wise to give your home a thorough clean, including vacuuming, changing bed linen and using a household flea spray.

Remember that most pets pick up fleas and worms from other pets; so if you socialise with other fluffies, let their owner know so they can act quickly to use a flea treatment dog appropriate!

To avoid worms making a home in your favourite canine, you can:

  • Clean water bowls regularly.
  • Make sure their beds are kept clean and changed often.
  • Poop-scoop or change the litter tray regularly.
  • Wash your hands and practise good pet hygiene.
