Parasites

  • Emodepside is used to control roundworms. It is available as a combination spot-on product for endoparasites.

  • This disease is caused by a microsporidian protozoan parasite, Encephalitozoon cuniculi. It is an intracellular parasite that preferentially colonises the kidneys, eyes and brain.

  • Endoparasiticides are also called anthelmintics or wormers. These medicines are used to control roundworms (nematodes) in dogs, cats and rabbits and tapeworms (cestodes) in dogs and cats.

  • Fenbendazole is used to control roundworms in dogs, cats and rabbits and some types of tapeworms in dogs and cats.

  • Gastrointestinal disease in ferrets is all too frequent - from dental disease, through gastric foreign bodies to persistent diarrhoea. Some are readily prevented while others require considerable diagnostic investigation and long term treatment.

  • Fipronil is an antiparasitic agent prescribed by your veterinarian for control of fleas, ticks, and lice on dogs and cats. Your veterinarian may also prescribe it for other ectoparasites.

  • Dogs can be irritated by fleas in two ways: Flea dermatitis and flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).

  • The most common flea found on cats and dogs is the cat flea. Many cats live with fleas but show minimal signs. Eradicating fleas can be a demanding task, with the cat and home both requiring treatment. Using a flea preventive can be easier than treating the problem once it has developed. It is important to use products made specifically for cats, as products intended for dogs or other animals can be very dangerous for cats.

  • Successful flea control involves: Eliminating fleas from your dog and strict environmental flea control.

  • Flubendazole is used to control roundworms and some types of tapeworms. Your veterinarian will advise a deworming programme for your pet.
