Parasite Prevention


Parasites that affect dogs and cats can be found either internally or externally. The pest may attach itself to the pet's fur, the animal may ingest it, or it may get infected through a mosquito bite. When left untreated, parasite infestation can cause serious discomfort or even life-threatening complications for the pet. Since animals depend on their owners to keep them well, it's essential for anyone who owns a dog or cat to be aware of the various parasites, their symptoms,and how to treat them.
