Lungworm Update

Do you remember our story about Brian Talbot recovering from Lungworm recently? https://cinqueportsvets.co.uk/blog/?p=403
Our other case mentioned in the story is Ben McCombe who was extremely poorly and we were unsure if he was going to pull through. We are really pleased to say he has made a full recovery after weeks of intensive care treatment and lots of TLC at home.

Here are some before and after pictures and we can definitely say he is feeling much better!

Brian and Ben were very lucky but many dogs do die from Lungworm so please Be Lungworm Aware and find out the risks to your dog and how you can best prevent them.

There is now an interactive Lungworm map which is available for you to see the spread of the parasite in your area. Remember many cases go unreported so the spread could potentially be higher in your area. Contact us to find out how best to protect your dog. More information
