Our team always recommends the regular use of flea and tick prevention for your pet to avoid an outbreak of these parasites.

If the worst happens and your pet contracts fleas, there are a number of medicinal treatments to kill adult fleas as well as flea eggs and larvae. When experiencing a flea outbreak, treat all pets in the household, and make sure to thoroughly wash all bedding and vacuum.

If you notice a tick on your pet, call Cherrybrook Vet Practice immediately on 9980 1800. Note that it is important to remove the tick in entirety, including the head and this may require some help from our team. It is also important to be aware of the signs of tick paralysis, so please speak to one of our team members to discuss what signs to look out for.
