Pet Parasite Prevention
Parasite & Heartworm Prevention and Treatment for Pets
Parasites are more than just a nuisance, they can cause serious, sometimes fatal, illness in your pet and also affect your family’s quality of life. Annual pet wellness exams help us assess your pet’s health status and establish baseline assessments for future use when your pet becomes ill. More often than not, your cat or dog may not even present any signs of illness.
Most Common Parasites in Pets:
Heartworm disease is 100% preventable by giving your pet a monthly heartworm prevention chew. The disease is treatable, but the cost of treatment can be expensive, overwhelming, and painful for your pet. You can treat your pet with monthly prevention for almost 10 years for the cost of treating your pet for heartworm infestation one time. Left untreated, heartworms can be fatal.
External Parasites (Fleas, Ticks, and Mites)
Ticks transmit and spread many diseases. Lyme Disease is the most prevalent and can cause a variety of spin-off issues such as lameness, lethargy, kidney issues, and joint swelling.
Mites can cause infections in the ear from scratching. Mange mites may cause scabies or mange and left untreated, they may compromise your pet’s immune system. Mites can easily transfer between animals, so prevention and treatment is important. Check out our online store for easy home delivery of your favorite parasite preventatives!
