Fleas are a common carrier of Tapeworm eggs, so if your pet has fleas it is important to treat them with a wormer such as Beaphar WormClear to target intestinal worms.
If your pet currently has fleas, it is important to treat their environment and other pets in the house for external parasites to prevent reinfestation. We don't recommend putting pets infested with fleas outside if they normally live indoors, as the fleas will begin to bite the human residents of the home. Instead, apply a fast-acting spot on such as Fiprotec and the fleas will begin to die as they bite the treated pet. In conjunction with treating the pets, Foggers and Sprays, infestations can be removed reasonably quickly.
All pet medicines must pass stringent testing to prove they are effective and safe before they are sold, regardless of whether they are available 'over the counter' or must be prescribed by a vet.
