HomePet Parasite Prevention and Control

Pet Parasite Prevention and Control

External parasites, such as fleas and ticks, intestinal parasites such as roundworms and hookworms, and heartworm, parasites that can live in your pet’s heart and lungs, may cause serious illness and even death in pets. For example, ticks can transmit infections like Lyme disease, and fleas can transmit tapeworms and Bartonella – the bacteria that causes “cat-scratch fever” in humans. Intestinal parasites, like roundworms and hookworms, are even transmissible to humans. Preventing parasites in your pets also helps protect children and other family members, so let’s work together to protect your pets and family.

You may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. Fleas can hide under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are very tiny (only the size of a pinhead), so they are very difficult to find. Intestinal parasites like roundworms can cause diarrhea and other problems, but many infected pets don’t show any signs of illness at all.

We will examine your pet for evidence of fleas, ticks or other parasites during their wellness exam and may recommend testing to see if your pet has parasites. We have the right medications to help control fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites in our pharmacy and online store.

Parasites are not just a nuisance. They can carry serious diseases that affect your pet’s overall health and longevity. Let us help you protect your pet. Call today to find out how!
