Parasite Prevention and Control
There was a time when parasites like fleas, ticks, and roundworms were considered mostly a nuisance. Now, however, we know that parasites can cause serious illness and even death in pets. For example,
ticks can transmit infections like Lyme disease, and fleas can transmit tapeworms and Bartonella - the bacteria that causes "cat-scratch fever" in humans. Another type of parasite, called a heartworm, is transmitted by mosquitoes. Heartworms live in your pet's lungs and heart, causing damage to these organs, and sometimes even death. Intestinal parasites, like roundworms and hookworms, also threaten pets and are even transmissible to humans.
Fortunately, we can recommend tests to tell if your pet has heartworms and intestinal parasites. We can also examine your pet for evidence of fleas, ticks, or other parasites.
Parasites are not just a nuisance. They can carry serious diseases that affect your pet's overall health and longevity and when left untreated may of these parasites are fatal.
