Parasite Prevention

Understanding Our Parasite Prevention

Parasites such as ticks, mites, fleas, worms, and intestinal parasites can not only cause discomfort for pets, but they can also cause serious health conditions to develop. Each type of parasite poses different health risks. Ticks can cause Lyme disease, which is dangerous for certain pets and pet owners. It's important to remember that both internal and external parasites can easily harm your animal. The method of prevention can also be different for internal and external parasites. The most common internal parasites are heartworm, hookworms, tapeworms, and more. The external parasites are lice, mites, fleas, and ticks.

One of the most effective methods for proper parasite prevention for pets is regular health checks up at our veterinary office. At Dallas Highway Animal Hospital, we will check the pet's skin to ensure there are no signs of parasites. If the pet is showing signs of internal parasites, we can perform a laboratory test for the pet. Some treatment methods are available for parasites, but our primary focus is to prevent parasites from ever affecting animals. Apart from keeping the pet's environment clean and having regular health checkups, we can prescribe specific parasite prevention products for your pet. These parasite preventatives are safe and convenient. At your animal's next health exam, we can ensure your pet is adequately protected against any parasites in their environment.
