Despite the lockdown, our dogs are still enjoying some much-needed time outside, whether they’re on their hourly ‘lockdown’ walk with you or playing in the garden.
But while they’re out and about, they’re at risk of picking up a number of intestinal worms that cause a range of symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting and lethargy.
The most common worm infecting dogs, roundworm, can be passed from dogs to humans with cases particularly prevalent among children. It can cause a condition called toxocariasis which can occasionally cause very serious illness, even blindness. This highlights the importance of protecting your dog from parasites, not just for their sake but also to keep your family safe, particularly at this this difficult time when so many children are spending more time at home and in the garden.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could help the UK’s leading veterinary charity while safeguarding our dog’s health and that of our family? The good news is, we can!
