COVID-19 update

It has been brought to our attention by vets that routine preventative treatment against Angiostrongylus vasorum is dropping in the current crisis and cases of angiostrongylosis are being seen as a result. This condition can be fatal and is an example of the importance of routine parasite prevention treatment for cats and dogs which remains vital during the COVID-19 outbreak. Posting, delivery and collection points for treatments means that cover can continue while minimising transmission risk. Without routine prevention, cases will rise leading to increased pet morbidity and mortality.
