Parasite Prevention

Pet parasites are a common problem, but luckily there are many things that can be done to prevent them.

Parasite Prevention

At Town and Country Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to providing the best possible care for your pet. Part of that care includes preventing parasites. Parasites can cause a variety of problems for pets, including skin irritations, gastrointestinal upsets, and even anemia. Some parasites can also be transmitted to humans, so it is important to take steps to prevent them.

We recommend that all pets be on a monthly parasite prevention medication, such as Heartgard or Revolution. In addition, it is important to keep your pet’s environment clean and free of potential hosts, such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitos. By taking these simple steps, you can help keep your pet healthy and free of parasites.
