The most well-known parasites that pets contract are fleas and ticks, but there are numerous others.

Mites, lice, heartworm, and intestinal parasites are some other parasites that frequently affect companion animals. Your pet may not only be irritated and uncomfortable as a result of a parasitic infestation, but their life may also be jeopardized. Pet parasites endanger human health as well. Fleas are the most common parasite on cats and dogs. These insects not only irritate skin but also disperse other parasites and diseases, like tapeworms and the bacteria that cause cat scratch fever. Animals who have been bitten by mosquitoes may develop heartworms. Ticks can spread harmful infections that can cause Lyme disease, paralysis, anemia, and other conditions. Pets with ear mites may scratch their ears excessively due to irritation. As a result, the ear’s blood vessels may burst and the tissue may swell up with blood. These are only a few of the parasites our pets might come into contact with.

Ways To Prevent Parasites in Pets

Thankfully, parasitic infestation can be avoided fairly successfully with modern veterinary medicine. Here are some simple ways to work toward parasite prevention:

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

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.

Practice good personal hygiene when handling pets of any age.

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

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

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

We’ll ensure that your pet receives the best care possible for parasite treatment. Depending on the animal’s age and whether an infestation is present or not, each pet will require a different parasite control strategy. Trust the professionals at Oakland Animal Medical Center to lead you through precautionary measures.
