What Is Parasite Prevention and Treatment?
Parasites can threaten your pet’s health and make life difficult for you and him. Examples of parasites can include fleas, ticks, and worms. There are proven preventative care and treatments designed to help keep your pet from developing conditions associated with parasites and to treat any present infestations.
If you are a new pet owner, it may be a good idea to schedule a physical examination and testing for parasites for your pet. A vet on our veterinary team can determine if there's a presence of internal or external parasites by locating them visually or by providing special tests to detect their presence inside the body. If we find parasites present in or on your pet, we will take measures to help rid your pet of those parasites. Treatments may vary depending on what type of parasite is detected.
Heartworm, Fleas, and Ticks
Heartworms can create serious medical conditions and must be treated with specialized approaches. If fleas and ticks are present on your pet, Dr. Jackson may take steps to remove the parasites and then may recommend additional treatments to reduce symptoms, including dermatology issues, pain, irritation, anemia, and much more. Once your pet's health is in check, a veterinarian on our veterinary team will recommend a course of preventative treatments that work best for your pet's needs.
