In this video, Part 11 of the IRGT #GreyhoundWednesdayWisdom​​ series, Helena Madden MVB MRCVS, a Veterinary Surgeon and Companion Animal Technician, offers advice on Parasite Prevention and Treatment.

Helena explains why regular parasite prevention and treatment is important for all dogs, including greyhounds. She explains some of the most important external and internal parasites to look out for and how to prevent them.

- Fleas - how to look for them and manage an outbreak

- Ticks - what they look like and where to find them

- Mites - these tend to not be visible so Helena explains how you might know your dog has them

- Worms - the different types of worms and how often to treat against them

The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT) was established in 1997 and since then many thousands of retired Irish Greyhounds have been rehomed through, or with the support of, the IRGT.
