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

Some other common parasites include mites, lice, and heartworm, as well as intestinal parasites. Not only could your pet be irritated and uncomfortable because of a parasitic infection, their life could be in danger as well. The health of humans is also threatened by parasites in 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 and diseases, such as tapeworms. Mosquito bites can transmit heartworms to our pets. 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. This can cause blood vessels in the ear to rupture and the tissue to swell with blood. These are just a few of the parasites that our pets may encounter.

Ways To Prevent Parasites in Pets

Thankfully, today’s veterinary medicine is pretty 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.

Practice good personal hygiene when handling pets of any age.

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

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

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.

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

When it comes to parasite treatment, we’ll make sure your pet gets the best care possible. Depending on the age of the animal and whether or not an infestation already exists, each pet will require a different parasite control strategy. Leave it to the experts at Sarasota Tamiami Animal Hospital to guide you through preventative measures.
