Parasite Prevention Saves Lives

Fleas can hide under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are so small (the size of a pinhead) that they are difficult to detect. Intestinal parasites such as roundworms can cause diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and other symptoms, but some infected pets show no symptoms at all.

Veterinary exams and parasite testing are critical steps in protecting your pet’s health. Allow our experienced staff to provide you with a comprehensive parasite control program. We can recommend a parasite testing schedule, go over signs of parasites you can look for at home, go over ways to control parasites in and around your home, go over treatment options if your pet has parasites, and explore means of controlling and preventing parasites in the future.
