The most well-known parasites that pets deal with are fleas and ticks, but there are many more.

In addition to these, other common parasites include mites, lice, heartworm and various intestinal parasites. A parasitic infection could endanger your pet’s life, in addition to making them uncomfortable and irritable. The parasites that are spread by our pets can sometimes endanger human health as well.

Fleas are infamous for being a nuisance. These insects not only irritate the skin, but also spread tapeworms, other parasites, and illnesses like cat scratch fever by dispersing bacteria. By biting our pets, mosquitoes may transmit heartworms. Tick-borne pathogens can cause Lyme disease, paralysis, anemia, and other diseases. Some parasites, like mites, can irritate an animal’s ears, causing them to scratch uncontrollably. As a result, the skin’s blood vessels may burst, resulting in a blood clot in the tissue. These are only a few examples of the parasites that our pets could contract.

Ways To Prevent Parasites in Pets

Thankfully, veterinary medicine is good at preventing parasitic infection. Here are some simple ways to work toward parasite prevention:

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

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

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

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.

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 make sure your pet receives the best care available for parasite treatment. Each pet will require a different parasite management method depending on the animal’s age and whether or not an infestation is present. Allow the professionals at Pines Animal Hospital help lead you through the process of freeing your pet of parasites.
