Fleas can be carriers for worms and diseases, ticks can cause anaemia and be carriers of Lymes disease. Keeping your pet free from fleas and ticks will help to keep them healthy.

There are many products available to control/prevent the infestation of fleas and ticks; consult your vet for advice. Ticks can be removed with tweezers, but special care must be taken not to leave the head behind when pulling the tick from your dog, if this should happen consult your vet as infection may occur.
