Lice

We see lice most commonly in puppies (though occasionally they can occur in adult dogs and cats of any age).

What problems can lice cause?
If left untreated lice can cause anaemia, irritation and dermatitis and general poor health. Lice are species specific and the species that cause problems in dogs and cats won't live on people but will easily spread between pets in the household in the same way as head-lice spread through children in a classroom.

How can you get rid of lice?
Lice are generally very straight forward to eradicate with topical parasiticidal treatments. We will recommend a suitable product for your pet.
