Being a parent to a fur baby means that prevention of infections from fleas, heartworm and intestinal worms is one of the highest priorities when it comes to caring for your pet. One thing is to ensure that your pup or kitten is having frequent treatments and the next is to make sure that the products that you are using are of the highest quality.
When your cat or dog is bitten by fleas, this can cause reactions including itchiness, rashes and to the more severe end of the scale, wounds from them irritating their own skin. One of the most common diseases is flea allergy dermatitis, commonly known as FAD.
If your pet does contract FAD this will cause them to constantly lick, bite and even scratch at their irritated skin spots furthermore causing them to show signs of uneasiness. Both hair loss and rashes are common in cats and dogs when they have FAD however to be sure that this is the right diagnosis, you should consult your vet.

It doesn’t matter if you are a feline or a canine, intestinal worms can literally be a pain in the gut!
It is completely normal for your inquisitive four-legged friend to contract intestinal worms at some point of their lifetime. Due to their curious nature as puppies, the contraction of worms can be brought on by simple hunting, fleas and even through their own mother’s milk.
You will be able to tell if there is an intestinal worm infection by if your pup is sliding on their bottom, having diarrhoea or by visibly seeing worms in their faeces.
Cats are very likely to pick up intestinal worms, by either ingesting soil or faeces or as like dogs, through fleas. It is important to take care of the infection, before the fact, as cats can actually give worms to their owners!
Intestinal worms can start to upset their digestion system leading to sickness and weight loss and if not treated, can cause serious ongoing conditions. So, it is important to treat these issues, before they even appear!
