LUNGWORM IN DOGS CAN BE FATAL
• There are several types of lungworm which affect dogs in the UK
• Whilst the number of cases of lungworm seems to be increasing, lungworm is much less common than other dog parasites such as fleas, ticks and worms that inhabit the gut
• Dogs become infected eating a snail or slug who is infected with the disease (NOT the slime trail left by the snail)
• The signs associated with lungworm infection are variable and include coughing, reduced ability to exercise, excessive bleeding from wounds or spontaneous bleeding / bruising, signs of internal bleeding including seizures. If untreated this can be fatal to dogs usually due to uncontrolled bleeding.
