Fleas and ticks are the most infamous parasites pets contract, but there are plenty of others.

Some other common parasites your pet may experience include mites, lice, heartworm, and intestinal parasites. Not only could your pet experience uncomfortable symptoms because of a parasitic infestation, their life could be in danger as well. The health of humans can also be threatened by parasites originating in our pets. Fleas are the most common parasite on cats and dogs. In addition to causing skin irritation, these insects spread bacteria that cause cat scratch fever as well as other parasites, such as tapeworms. Mosquitoes can transmit heartworms to our pets through their bites. Ticks can transmit dangerous infections that can lead to Lyme disease, paralysis, anemia, and other conditions. Ear mites can irritate our pets’ ears and cause them to scratch excessively, leading to burt blood vessels and swollen tissue. These are just a few of the parasites that our pets may encounter and the problems they can cause.

Ways To Prevent Parasites in Pets

The good news is, modern veterinary medicine has advanced enough that parasitic infestation can be pretty easily prevented. Here are some tips when it comes to parasite prevention:

Clean up any pet feces to prevent the spread of worm larvae or eggs.

Consult a veterinarian to ensure you’re choosing a correct, safe treatment for your pet.
