Parasites and Your Pet

Parasites and Your Pet
Are you itching to protect your pets from parasites?

Did you know?

Prevention is as easy as 1-2-3

  1.  Fleas and ticks are blood-drinking parasites that can also transmit serious diseases to pets. Ticks can transmit infections like Lyme disease, and fleas can transmit tapeworms and Bartonella-the bacteria that cause cat-scratch fever in humans. Ask us about monthly medication to control these parasites and reduce the likelihood that your pets will be infected.
  2. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes, and they can infect dogs and cats. Even indoor pets aren't completely safe from heartworms: 25% of heartworm-infected cats live completely indoors. Heartworms damage the heart and lungs and can even cause death! Ask us about heartworm preventatives to protect your pets.
  3. Roundworms, hookworms, and other intestinal parasites can cause serious illness in pets. Some of these parasites are even transmissible to humans! We can help with fecal tests that identify intestinal parasites as well as medications to safely and effectively control them. Ask us how to protect your pets and family.
Call today to schedule an appointment, and don't forget to bring a fecal sample for testing.
