Worms can cause significant disease in our pets especially puppies and kittens. Moreover, some of these worms can be transmitted to people.
A variety of worming products are available for your convenience, these include tablets to be given orally and topical spot-on treatment applied to the back of the neck, which also help, prevent fleas.
Please phone the Rose Bay Hospital and speak to one of the nursing or vet staff to determine an appropriate worming protocol.
Heartworm is fatal disease that can cause respiratory compromise and lead to heart failure. Mosquitoes carry the parasite.
Prevention involves monthly tablets, specific monthly spot-on treatment or a yearly injection (dogs only). If you animal has not received preventative medication by 6 months of age we recommend performing an in-house blood test to ensure they are not infected with the parasite.
Please phone the Rose Bay Vet Hospital and speak to one of the nursing staff to determine an appropriate worming protocol.
