Fleas, ticks, and worms... Oh my!

Parasites are not only a nuisance in our pets, they 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 congestive heart failure and eventually death. Intestinal parasites, like roundworms and hookworms, also threaten pets and are even transmissible to humans.

You may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. Fleas can hide under your pet's fur, and some ticks are very tiny. Intestinal parasites like roundworms can cause diarrhea and other problems, but many infected pets don't show any signs of illness at all.

Our staff and doctors can recommend tests to tell if your pet has parasites or is at risk. We can also examine your pet for evidence of fleas, ticks, or other external parasites. Our expert staff can recommend medications to help control and even prevent fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites as well as what signs to look for.

Parasites are not just a nuisance. They can carry serious diseases that affect your pet's overall health and longevity. Let us help you protect your pet.
