Alesha Dixon and Tess Daly at Crufts
The celeb pair join us from Crufts talking about the world’s most famous dog show and their own dogs, they will also be encouraging dog owners to be lungworm aware in 2015, as part of Bayer Animal Health’s on-going parasite prevention initiative, Be Lungworm Aware
• Lungworm is a parasite that infects dogs, causing symptoms such as breathing problems, coughing, persistent bleeding , vomiting, diarrhoea and at worst death
• Pet owners are being urged to be on the lookout for signs their dog could have picked up the deadly lungworm parasite, with evidence to suggest it is spreading across the UK
• Dogs can become infected after swallowing slugs or snails carrying the lungworm larvae. While some dogs are obviously at risk due to eating slugs and snails on purpose, small slugs and snails can be accidentally swallowed when dogs are drinking from outdoor water bowls, eating grass, playing with toys left out in the garden.
