Flea, Worm & Tick Treatment Middlesbrough
Here at Jacqui Paterson’s we offer a reliable and proven flea, worm and tick treatment service to our clients throughout Middlesbrough and the surrounding areas. If your pet ends up being the victim of a parasite it not only puts your four legged friend in danger but also your family can be at risk from contracting serious diseases which is why we offer prevention methods for parasites such as fleas, ticks and worms as well as fast acting treatments.
If your pet has contracted worms they will be living in your pet’s digestive systems which, in turn, can result in weight loss, eating problems and diarrhoea. Many pets that have worms can show no signs whatsoever so it is important that regular worming is carried out to ensure that your pet is fully protected from these parasites. In cases including puppies and kittens a distended abdomen “pot belly” can be a sign that your pet is infected and it is important that this is treated as soon as possible to minimise any harm.
Fleas are most comfortable in warm places that have sufficient access to their main food source, blood, which is why your pet’s fur provides a very desirable food source for them and they will tend to take up residence in your home. A flea has the ability to pass on a variety of nasty diseases when they bite through your pet’s skin and can also carry certain types of worms that can be passed on to your pet which is why having regular, preventative treatment methods for both fleas and worms is extremely important.
The tick can carry many diseases, including Lyme disease which is a very serious bacterial infection and as with other parasites having a regular prevention plan in place is the best treatment. Ticks are starting to pose more of a threat as they are becoming a lot more common, it used to be that a pet only had the chance to pick up a tick from areas where sheep graze, however, they have now become a lot more widespread due to them being distributed to domestic gardens. We offer quality tick treatment here at Jacqui Paterson’s to prevent ticks and ensure your pet is safe from the diseases that ticks can carry.
