Here’s a flea in your ear


Ticks and fleas are still very much with us and it is important to make sure that your pets are protected from the serious risk of biliary. We have seen an alarming number of cases recently with dogs and cats suffering advanced stages of the disease where their survival rate is seriously diminished. Please be responsible and treat your animals as a form of prevention. Dip baths are available for use at both the SPCA and Grahamstown Vets for this purpose as well as the off the shelf medication that can be sourced from Hoof and Hound, and the Veterinary practices in town.  For more information and or advice on animal care, please do not hesitate to contact the Grahamstown SPCA or one of the friendly vets in town.
