Regular veterinary check-ups and parasite screenings play a crucial role in preserving your pet’s well-being.
In the past, fleas, ticks, and roundworms were merely bothersome; now we understand they can pose serious threats to pets, potentially causing severe illness or even fatality. Ticks, for instance, can transmit Lyme disease, while fleas can spread tapeworms and Bartonella—the bacteria causing ‘cat-scratch fever’ in humans.
Heartworm, another dangerous parasite, is transmitted through mosquitoes, residing in a pet’s lungs and heart, potentially leading to organ damage and, tragically, death. Intestinal parasites like roundworms and hookworms not only endanger pets but can also transmit to humans. Detecting parasites can be challenging as they may remain hidden or show no immediate signs of infection.
Thankfully, we offer diagnostic tests to identify parasites in your pet and provide expert guidance on controlling fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. Protecting your pets from parasites also extends to safeguarding your family, making our collaborative efforts essential in maintaining a parasite-free environment.
