Fleas and worms need to be treated separately and differently, with a wide range of treatments available for both. You may wonder how long to wait between worming and flea treatment, which depends on the treatments you’ve given your dog, so it’s best practice to check with your local vet. Below, we’ve shared the most popular treatments to get your furry friends rid of the nasties!

For Your Bunny
For our smaller furry friends, flea and worms are still a risk!
Fleas aren’t a common occurrence for your floppy-eared friends, but when they do occur, spot-on treatments are the way to go! These are usually only available from your local vet, who may want to see your rabbit first. It’s very important to remember not to use cat and dog flea treatment on your rabbits, as this is poisonous and not meant for them. Household flea sprays may also be used but you must read the safety instructions on the back to make sure that it’s safe to use with rabbits.
Rabbits aren’t often burdened with worms, but out of all of the different kinds, they’re most likely to pick up pinworms or tapeworms. In most cases, treatment won’t be given unless the worms have made your bunny sick. The treatment provided in this case is anti-parasitic injections or medications, which your local vet can prescribe. A worm diagnosis is often confirmed through a faeces test by your vet and it’s super important to decontaminate your bunny’s living and grazing areas!
