If your pet is in the Algarve, there are some things that you should pay attention to:

Have the vaccination up-to-date - there are several deadly diseases that your pet may get if not vaccinated correctly, namely parvovirus (or "blood diarrhea"), distemper, leptospirosis, viral hepatitis, kennel cough, etc...

▸ Internal deworming - internal parasites will slowly degrade the health of animals if they are not controlled, and may even infect humans, especially children, the elderly, pregnant women or people with low immunity. It is enough to deworm with the necessary frequency in each case with a product adapted to each animal. Contact Us!

▸ External deworming – this climate is great for us and for animals, the beach, the sun, the countryside ... but also great for external parasites and viruses. We have fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, mites, lice, etc. all year round. These parasites transmit diseases to animals and even humans. They transmit for example tick fever, scabies, leishmaniasis and heartworm.
▸ Leishmaniasis and heartworm disease – two of the most common mosquito-borne diseases in the Algarve. In addition to prevention of mosquito bites with appropriate pipettes or collars, we must prevent these diseases in various ways adapted to each case and each family. Talk to us.

▸ Behavior – in addition to health care, when we are responsible for an animal we must be able to educate it properly avoiding behavioral problems, fears, aggression, anxiety, antisocial animals. Small tricks can make a difference, and a good trainer with the right supervision can be important in the healthy growth from the social and relational point of view of your dog or cat.
