Preventing future spread of lungworm


Lungworm is the principal endoparasite in the UK that could potentially result in fatal consequences for our dogs.

Lungworm can be carried by snails and slugs which can be found in many parks, woods and other leafy areas as well as back gardens and grassy areas.
