Don’t let your dog be outsmarted by a fox
The hookworm Uncinaria stenocephala, which can be passed onto dogs, infects up to 68% of the fox population*.
The fox population could be putting more dogs at risk of contracting hookworm and lungworm. Lungworm can be fatal, so if you see foxes out and about, make sure you add these parasites to your list of potential risks.
