Pet Parasite Control
Organisms that live inside or feed on other creatures are known as parasites.
The most notorious offenders are fleas and ticks, although they only make up a portion of the problem. Mites, lice, heartworm, as well as other intestinal and other parasites, are other frequent parasites. An animal with parasites may experience everything from little annoyances to significant illnesses that, if left untreated, can be fatal. Parasites can also threaten human health.
Fleas are the most common parasite on dogs and cats. These insects irritate the skin and transmit other parasites and diseases such as tapeworms and the bacteria that cause cat scratch fever. Mosquitoes can transmit heartworms to our pets. Ticks can cause serious infections with consequences such as anemia, paralysis, lyme disease and more. Ear mites can cause irritation in the ears and cause our pets to excessively scratch. This can cause blood vessels to break in the ear and make the tissue inflate with blood. These are only a few examples of the parasites our pets may come into contact with.
