Parasite Prevention

If your pet has parasites, you may not be able to easily tell. 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 can cause diarrhea and other problems, but many infected pets don't show any signs of illness at all. Such parasites, like roundworms and hookworms, also threaten pets and are even transmissible to humans. Fortunately, we can perform tests to tell if your pet has parasites. We can also examine your pet for evidence of fleas, ticks, or other parasites. Our expert staff can recommend medications to help control fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites.

Veterinary examinations and parasite testing are important ways to protect your pet's health. Preventing parasites in your pets also helps protect children and other family members. We can recommend a schedule for parasite testing, discuss the signs of parasites you can watch for at home, review ways to control parasites in and around your home, discuss treatment options if your pet has parasites, and recommend ways to control and prevent parasites in the future. 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 and your family. Call today to find out how!
