THINGS TO WATCH OUT INSPECIFICITY OF THE FONTAINEBLEAU AREA
- Echinococcus : Treatment with a wormer containing praziquantel is required before returning to the UK in order to eliminate infection with Echinococcus tapeworms.
- Ticks : Ticks may transmit diseases to your dog ( babesiosis, Lyme disease and erhlichiosis). Dogs on holiday in Fontainebleau should be protected from tick-bites. Also any ticks found should be removed immediately. You can take your pet to a veterinary practice to have this done correctly. If making regular visit to Fontainebleau you may want to have your dog vaccinated against Babesiosis. A vaccine is available in France for that purpose.
- Leptospirosis : The vaccination for the prevention of this infection is recommended in the area of Fontainebleau
- Pine processionary Moth Larvae : These fluffy-looking caterpillar-like larvae arouse the dog's curiosity. The larvae secret a poison, which causes severe infections in the dog's mouth or tongue upon contact. If you suspect that your pet has come in contact with them, immediatly consult your nearest veterinarian.
- Vipère Aspic : If your pet has been bitten by a viper, immediately consult your nearest veterinarian. The vipère Aspic is a small snake that can be found in the forest of Fontainbleau. Hibernation takes place from October until March.
- Wild boar : The forest is full of wild boar. Be careful that your dog is not fighting with one of them.
Dogs travelling abroad require a pet passport and must be vaccinated against rabies. Always consult your vet for advice before taking your pet on holiday with you.
