It is really important to remember your pets may be playing host to worms and that you need to regularly give deworming treatments usually in the form of a tablet.

Worms in dogs and cats can have a range of effects from quite mild to the most severe effect, being fatal. They are common and can also affect humans (they can be extremely harmful to children).

They are usually acquired by accidental ingestion of eggs in the environment (easily done) or in puppies/kittens passed from the mother.

I have personally seen puppies in Seychelles with huge numbers of worms and when they are dewormed it looks as if they are passing noodles rather than faeces!

Adults should be wormed at least every 3 months whereas puppies and kittens should be treated more regularly-ask your vet or the SSPCA!

Parvovirus is a common and very serious threat to dogs in Seychelles. This virus mainly attacks the gut leading to vomiting and diarrhoea (often containing blood), this leads to rapid dehydration and unfortunately often death. 

It is very important to vaccinate puppies and prevent contact with unknown dogs until they have completed the course of injections. They can be vaccinated every year after their initial puppy vaccination.

If you notice any symptoms of Parvovirus it is important to bring your dog to the vet at the soonest opportunity. Even with aggressive therapy many dogs unfortunately never recover but a few respond to fluid therapy and medication.

Skin parasites

In Seychelles many animals have problems with skin parasites in particular ticks and fleas. Other beasts include mites which lead to a condition known as mange.

It is advisable to check your animals for signs of itchiness or skin disease and use regular preventative products. Always read the label as the wrong dose or using a dog product on a cat can have very serious consequences. Contact a vet or member of the SSPCA team for advice.

Are you providing the 5 freedoms to animals under your care?

1. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.


2. Freedom from Discomfort - by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.


3. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease - by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.


4. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour - by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind.


5. Freedom from Fear and Distress - by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

At the Seychelles SPCA we often have unwanted animals brought to us for rehoming.

In the majority of cases these are mixed/'local' breed dogs and cats. 

We would love to hear from you if you are considering a new addition of a pet to your home however it is important to consider the impact on your lifestyle before adopting an animal.

Please consider the money and time that your new pet wil require of you and do your research.

Animals for rehoming at the SSPCA are not 'for sale' however we do ask for a small donation. It will also be necessary to buy wormers and parasite products for your pet. They will also require a visit to the vet for a general health check and for vaccination against Leptospirosis and Parvovirus (dogs).

We will post news of animals requiring a home on this site and on Facebook.
