The number and variety of parasites effecting pets in the UK has changed substantially over recent years. Thanks to modern day living with central heating, flea pupae can survive dormant in carpets, soft furnishing and between floorboards, without the pet, for up to 1 year. Lungworm has spread across the country to regions that it previously not been seen in and a recent report found ticks affected 1 in 3 dogs.
