Pet Parasite Prevention

The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented.

Pet Parasite Prevention

We understand how important your pet is to your family, which is why we work so hard to offer the best services possible to keep your pet healthy.

Pet Parasite Prevention

We frequently see pets infected with the following parasites:

  • Heartworms
  • Hook, Round, Whip, and Tapeworms
  • Fleas & Ticks
  • Coccidia, Giardia and other intestinal protozoa
  • Demodectic and Sarcastic Mange Mites

Many of these conditions can and will be diagnosed and treated at your annual vaccination appointment. The good news, however, is that most can be prevented simply by staying on monthly preventatives for both your dogs and cats.

Our veterinarians will also discuss other strategies you can employ to keep your pets parasite free.
