Lungworm kills, but it can be prevented.
Prevention MUST be monthly and can only be prescribed by your vet.
Treatment is available and can result in full recovery, but as this parasite can be fatal it is important to consider prevention. Preventive products are available and with regular use prevention is easy to achieve.
Lungworm, Angiostrongylus Vasorum, is a parasite that can cause serious health problems in dogs, and can even be fatal if not diagnosed and treated.
Dogs of all ages and breeds can become infected, but younger dogs seem to be more prone to picking up the parasite, and dogs who are known to eat slugs and snails are also considered at high risk.

At Manor Vets we are different to most veterinary practices because we have experienced vets and nurses on the premises around the clock every day of the year.
This enables us to deal with surgical and medical emergencies that arise during the night, as well as continued monitoring and care of hospitalised and critically ill patients.
We are fortunate at Manor Vets to have an amazing team of committed, talented and enthusuastic staff.
