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.

Ways To Prevent Parasites in Pets

Veterinary medicine has advanced to a point that most parasitic infections are preventable. Here are some key ways to keep your pet healthy and minimize their risk of parasitic infestations:

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.

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

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

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.

We’ll ensure that your pet has the highest level of care when dealing with the treatment of parasites. Every pet will require a different parasite control plan depending on their age and whether or not an infestation is already present.
