parasite-prevent01The 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.

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 Sarcoptic 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.
