Disease Prevention Update - Lungworm

31 August 2017

Disease Prevention Update - Lungworm

As many of you may be aware, cases of lungworm in dogs have been increasing over the last few years. Whilst the overall number of cases is still very low, the damage caused by this parasite can be severe and even fatal. The overwhelming majority of cases have been in dogs which have spent time in England or Southern Scotland. Recently the disease appears to be moving slowly north. It is thankfully not yet a problem in Denny and surrounding area.


In response to increased reports of the disease, we are putting in place preventative recommendations to help keep our patients safe. For dogs who live in (or South of) the Greater Glasgow area we recommend monthly worming with milbemycin (one of the active ingredients the wormer that we supply) to reduce their risk of infection. If your dog visits one of these risk areas, we recommend worming with milbemycin once monthly for the duration of your visit and for the following two months after they return. Please get this from us. It is not available in pet shops. It costs less than £4 to worm a 25kg dog and the wormer also covers your pet for all of the other important worms in dogs.


The risk of your dog contracting lungworm remains very low, but due to the severity of illness it causes in these rare cases, we feel preventative steps should be taken. The wormer we recommend is quite an economical way of preventing this disease and also treats other dog worms.


Should you have any further questions please get in touch with a member of the team on 01324 829989.
