Parasite Prevention and Control

Parasite prevention and control is an important part of pet ownership as they can cause serious illness or even death in our pets.

Ticks, fleas, and mosquitos can transmit diseases, parasites, and worms. Many infected pets do not show any signs of illness at all so you may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. These parasites can hide in your pet’s fur and skin which can also make it difficult to determine if your pet is infected. 

Some parasites are transmittable to humans, including children, and other pets. These diseases include rabies, toxoplasmosis, roundworms, hookworms, ringworm, giardia, cat scratch disease, pneumonitis, scabies, tuberculosis, salmonella, and heartworms. In most cases, simply maintaining good sanitation and following a year-round doctor recommended deworming program are “the keys’ to preventing these.

Our Parasite Control and Prevention Program

We believe it is important to follow a year-round parasite prevention program. Our doctor recommended products are proven effective and will keep your pet safe and healthy.

It is important to be proactive by keeping your pet on a parasite control and prevention program.
