    Defleaing and deworming treatments for cats and dogs at our Community Vet Clinic in Kensal Green, North London.

    Defleaing and deworming are important to keep your pet at optimal health.

    Fleas and other parasites can cause anything from minor irritations to severe health issues, which can be fatal. If your animal has been seen by Mayhew in the last year for their vaccinations, you can buy defleaing and deworming products from our reception. If not, your local vet will be able to advise.

    What is the process?

    Defleaing involves applying a spot of liquid to the back of an animal’s neck once a month. Deworming involves giving your pet a tablet, granules or a paste every three months for adult animals and more often for puppies and kittens.

    Mayhew strongly advises using products recommended by us or your vet, as many other easily available treatments are found to be ineffective or less effective. Some over-the-counter treatments are very dangerous if given to the wrong animal, so advice from us or your local vet should always be sought to ensure that the most effective and safest treatment is prescribed or recommended for your pet. The dosage of treatment must also be for the correct weight and age of animal.

    If animals have been seen for neutering or vaccinations at Mayhew in the last 12 months, they can return for flea and worm treatment. A weight check may be required.
