Parasites are something that can affect every pet. It is important, for both your family and your pet that you take the appropriate precautions to help prevent your pet from being infected by any parasites like ticks, fleas, heartworm, and other internal and external parasites.
Fleas and ticks can cause your pet itchiness, discomfort, and skin irritation. More importantly, these parasites act like hosts to more serious illnesses like Lyme Disease and other diseases that can result in cardiac conditions, joint problems, lameness, and neurological disorders.
That’s why at Companion Pet Care; we require a stool sample to ensure that your pet is free of any parasites, and to take the appropriate action if their stool shows otherwise. Our pharmacy carries the best quality parasite control medicine to ensure that your pet is safe and healthy, and parasite-free at all times! Parasite preventatives can be taken orally or can be absorbed by your pet’s skin.
Your pet can contract parasites by:
Heartworm is a worm that attacks your pet’s heart and lungs. This condition is transmitted by mosquitos. As larvae, this worm is harmless. But once the larvae develops into an adult worm, it moves to the heart of your pet and can cause serious heart conditions and respiratory problems. At Companion Pet Care, we offer the best heartworm preventatives to keep you pet heartworm-free at all times! Heartworm preventatives can be taken orally or via an injection.
