When it comes to parasites with dogs, ignoring the problem will only make things worse and may end up affecting not just your pet, but your home too. Dogs can catch fleas, ticks, scabies, and ear mites simply by being near other dogs, or by passing through high-risk areas when out and about, such as the long grass out in the countryside. We can offer treatments that help control fleas, ticks, mites, lungworms, and roundworms all in one – helping to prevent a wide range of diseases.
How to tell if your dog has fleas:
- Bite marks
- Excessive scratching
- Hair loss
- Itchy bite marks on your own skin
Some dogs are allergic to flea saliva, which in extreme cases can lead to irritation, severe itching, and weepy sore skin. It's therefore critical that you treat your dog's flea problem as soon as you spot the warning signs.
Studies show that for every 10 fleas on your dog, there could be as many as 100 eggs in your home. And because eggs can lie dormant for months, you need to treat your dog for fleas all year round

There are a variety of flea and parasite treatments available for your dog and your home - we offer tailored worm and flea treatments that suit you and your pet’s individual needs. We strongly recommend that dogs of all ages are routinely treated against common parasites.

Dogs are also susceptible to worms and some, such as lungworm, can be very serious. With so many worming products to choose from, it can be difficult to decide on an appropriate course of worm treatment for your dog. Maven Vets can advise on a solution that's as safe, as it is effective.

How much will my pet’s treatment cost?
The treatment cost for your pet can vary depending on the service provided. You can request an estimate before any treatment is provided to your pet.
Will my pet insurance cover the costs of treatment?
Having a good pet insurance policy allows you to concentrate on what’s best for your pet while knowing help is there for the cost of unexpected treatment should they become ill or are injured. The type of policy you choose can have implications for the costs you will face so it’s important to choose the right cover.
The four main types of policy are as follows:
- Accident: provides cover for accidents only and no cover for illness
- Time-Limited: provides cover for a set amount of time (usually 12 months) and after this period the condition is excluded
- Maximum Benefit: provides cover up to a maximum amount of money per condition and once this limit is reached the condition is excluded
- Lifetime: provides a set amount of money each year which is refreshed each time you renew your policy allowing you to continue to claim for ongoing conditions
