MG&A Pet owner research – how concerned are you about lungworm?

Based on information in press in April 2017, there were more than 80 lungworm case reports in the previous 2 months and 6 more deaths. The majority of cases were in the South of UK.

MG&A asked dog owners how concerned they would be if their dog was not protected with a lungworm product, their dog would get lungworm.

Tow thirds of owners (63%) felt they would be concerned or very concerned about their dog catching lungworm if it were not protected. Just 15% had no concerns.
