Types of Parasites

Several types of parasites can affect your pet, including:

  • Fleas: Fleas are common external parasites that can cause itching, irritation, and allergic reactions in pets.
  • Ticks: Ticks are external parasites that can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease and ehrlichiosis to pets and humans.
  • Intestinal worms: Intestinal worms, such as roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms, can cause gastrointestinal issues and nutrient deficiencies in pets.
  • Heartworms: Heartworms are internal parasites that can cause serious and potentially fatal heart and lung disease in pets.

Prevention and Control
Preventing parasites is easier and more effective than treating an infestation.

Our veterinarians recommend the following parasite prevention and control measures:

  • Flea and tick prevention: We offer a variety of safe and effective flea and tick prevention products for pets.
  • Heartworm prevention: Monthly heartworm preventatives can protect your pet from heartworm disease.
  • Intestinal parasite control: Regular fecal exams and deworming medications can help prevent and control intestinal parasites in pets.

Benefits of Parasite Prevention

  • Protects your pet’s health: Parasites can cause various health issues in pets, ranging from mild irritation to serious illness. Prevention is key to keeping your pet healthy.
  • Protects your family: Some parasites can be transmitted from pets to humans. Preventing parasites in your pet can help protect your family’s health.
  • Saves you money: Preventing parasites is often more cost-effective than treating an infestation or illness caused by parasites.

When to Start Parasite Prevention
It’s important to start parasite prevention early, as many parasites can affect pets at a young age. Our veterinarians can recommend a parasite prevention plan tailored to your pet’s specific needs.
