Every pet can get parasites, but the good news is they are treatable and preventable. We can help you treat any parasite issue to get your pet back to their normal, healthy self in no time. There are several types of parasites your pet can contract that you should be aware of.

Here is a list of common types of parasites:

  • Heartworms
  • Ticks
  • Intestinal Worms
  • Fleas
  • Skin and Ear Mites
  • Coccidia
  • Giardia

There are several signs to check for if your pet has parasites.

Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Pale gums caused by blood loss
  • Poor appetite
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Evidence of worms, or white specks, in their feces
  • Weight loss
  • Lethargy
  • Excessive scratching and gnawing at the skin.

Parasitic infections can happen to any pet which is why it is important to keep your pet on prevention to keep them healthy.

Here is some prevention that we offer:

  • Heartworm Prevention – Before your pet starts a heartworm preventative, we will perform a simple test to make sure they don’t have them. Preventative is available in chewable tablets, and topical liquids that typically last for 30 days. We also offer ProHeart, a preventative injectable, that can provide up to one year of protection.
  • Flea and Tick Prevention
  • Intestinal Worm Prevention – Once we test to see what kinds of worms your pet has, we will provide the right worming treatment that will get your pet feeling great again and schedule them for ongoing treatments to make sure the worms don’t come back. Most heartworm preventatives also treat many of these problematic worms and provide ongoing protection throughout the year making it very convenient to protect your pet from many different worms all with one product.
  • Ear and Skin Mite Prevention
