Parasite Prevention

Ensuring your pet’s wellness involves safeguarding them against parasites that can compromise their health. We provide a thorough strategy for parasite protection, covering prevalent risks like fleas, ticks, intestinal worms, and heartworms.

Fleas reproduce rapidly. The fleas visible on your dog make up just 5-10% of the total flea population in their surroundings. The majority of fleas exist in the egg and larval stages, which can be found in your carpets, furniture, bedding, and outdoor areas.

Options for eliminating fleas from your pet:

  • Oral tablets offer immediate relief and rapid elimination.
  • Monthly tablets act as efficient flea birth control, disrupting the lifecycle.
  • Shampoos and rinses eliminate fleas present on your pet but do not provide lasting protection.

Ticks in animals pose a serious threat to their health and well-being. These tiny parasites can transmit harmful diseases and cause discomfort for your beloved pet. At Scarborough Vet Surgery, we understand the importance of protecting your furry friend from tick-related dangers.

Our experienced veterinary team offers comprehensive tick prevention and treatment options to keep your pet safe and healthy. Trust us to provide expert care and guidance to ensure your pet stays tick-free and happy.

Intestinal worms in animals can pose significant health risks and discomfort for your furry companion. These parasites can cause a range of issues, from digestive problems to more serious health complications. At Scarborough Vet Surgery, we prioritise the well-being of your pet and offer comprehensive solutions for intestinal worm prevention and treatment.

Our experienced veterinary team is dedicated to safeguarding your pet’s health by providing effective parasite control measures. Trust us to help protect your beloved pet from the dangers of intestinal worms, ensuring they live a happy and healthy life.

Diagnostics

We provide a range of medical diagnostics for dogs and cats.

Our in-house laboratory gives us fast results on blood testing, basic cytology (for cancer diagnosis), urine and faecal analysis and skin scrapes. If your animal’s condition is more complex, we also employ the services of an external veterinary pathology service that offers full comprehensive testing.

Our on-site X-ray imaging (radiology) facilities allow us to promptly diagnose many conditions, from bone fractures to internal obstructions. Our veterinary nurses have undergone additional training in carrying out X-ray procedures.

We are able to carry out genetic testing for breed identification purposes and can pre-screen breeding animals for genetic diseases.
