Vaccination Frequency and Parasite Prevention
Cats and dogs are susceptible to a number of parasitic infections. Many pet parasites are zoonotic, meaning they can infect people as well as animals. Parasite prevention is not only important for the health of your pet but also for the health of your family.
We can help guard against parasites such as:
- Fleas and ticks are some of the most common skin parasites faced by dogs and cats. These carry diseases such as Lyme disease.
- Roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, coccidia, and other intestinal parasites can cause a wide variety of internal and digestive issues.
- Heartworms are carried by mosquitoes. They infect your pet’s heart and lungs and can be costly to treat.
Our in-house laboratory can conduct screenings for existing parasites during your pet’s annual exam.
