Parasite Prevention & Control

Parasites aren't just a pain for your pet - they can harm you and your family, too! External parasites like fleas, mites and ticks and internal parasites like roundworms and hookworms can affect people as well as pets. Other parasites, like heartworms, pose serious health problems to your pet. Our staff members are knowledgeable about flea, tick and heartworm prevention. We offer a variety of flea and tick and heartworm control products, including Frontline, Pro heart and Heartgaurd. All dogs should receive a heartworm preventative year-round because mosquitoes can appear during warm periods of winter and, once a dog becomes infected, heartworms are life-threatening. Most commonly we use an annual Pro heart injection to prevent your dog catching heartworm.

Fecal testing, for detecting intestinal parasites, is recommended each year for all pets. We can do a fecal flotation of a stool sample to check for worm eggs and also search for Gardia and Tritrichomonas in a fresh stool sample and mucosa scrape under the microscope.
