Anti-Parasite Questionnaire

Take our parasite risk assessment today

Due to the change in RCVS Under Care Guidance, it is now a requirement that pets have a physical examination before appropriate antiparasite treatment can be prescribed by a vet. 

By filling out the below questionnaire, it will give our vets the best information for prescribing the most appropriate antiparasite treatment for your pet.  If you decline antiparasite treatment at the time of vaccination, by filling out the questionnaire, it may allow us to authorise antiparasite treatment at a later date, based on the below risk factors.  There may however be certain situations where a repeat physical exam is necessary in order to prescribe the most appropriate medication.
