Parasites are organisms that live on or in an organism of another species.

If your pet is hosting parasites, they may not only endure unpleasant symptoms, but their life may also be in jeopardy. Parasites that originate in our pets can potentially endanger human health as well. The most prevalent parasite in dogs and cats is the flea. These insects not only irritate the skin but also spread things like tapeworms and the bacteria that causes cat scratch fever. Ticks can spread harmful illnesses that can cause Lyme disease, paralysis, anemia, and other problems. Pets who have ear mites may scratch their ears excessively, causing swelling tissue and ruptured blood vessels. These are only a handful of the parasites that our pets could face.

Ways To Prevent Parasites in Pets

The good news is, modern veterinary medicine has advanced enough that parasitic infection can be pretty easily prevented. Here are some ways you can help prevent parasites in and on your pets:

Start pets on a regular deworming regime at a young age.

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

Grooming animals can help reduce the risk of fur contamination and help catch an infestation early.

Use spot-on products to prevent tick and flea bites.

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

Practice good personal hygiene when handling pets of any age.

Make sure to fully finish any treatment plan given to you by your veterinarian.

We’ll take excellent care to completely rid your pet of parasites and make a parasite control plan for your pet based on their age and how far along an infestation may be. Leave it to the caring team at Fort Myers Animal Medical Center to get your pet feeling like themself again!
