Some clients have approached us with questions about lungworm after seeing the recent advertising campaign on TV. We would like to assure everyone that the only cases we have seen in this area have been contracted when the dogs have traveled south.
Therefore, if you travel further south with your dog and/or your dog tends to eat grass, your animal could become infected.
You can check the area you are travelling to onwww.lungworm.co.uk/map. Of course, Cumbria could become affected in the future.
A monthly dose of milbemycin (Milprazon is the tablet we use) will protect your dog and prevent the disease developing. Please speak to us for advise if you are worried about how these parasites may affect your pet.
