When you put your pet on a parasite prevention plan, you guard their health and wellbeing. This can help ensure your pet has the right armour to defend themselves against unwanted critters and parasites. To build a parasite prevention plan tailored to your pet’s needs, call us at 250-828-2939.
Why should I put my pet on a parasite prevention plan?
When you bring your pet in to see one of our veterinarians, we can work together to create a parasite prevention plan tailored to their health and lifestyle needs. This can include a monthly prescription of preventative medication and techniques to boost your pet’s immune system and protect them against parasites. Our team will show you how to regularly administer the medication and how best to maintain your pet’s overall health.
What parasites can my pet get?
There are two types of parasites, internal and external. Internal parasites such as roundworms, tapeworms, and heartworms can live inside your pet’s body. External parasites such as ticks, mites, and fleas live on your pet’s skin.
How can I protect my pet against parasites?
In addition to routine checkups, regular grooming can help protect your pet against parasites. This can help eliminate any external parasites attached to their fur and reveal any changes to their skin. We also highly recommend washing your hands thoroughly after touching your pet or their feces to prevent the spread of these harmful parasites. If you’re unsure what to do, our veterinarians would be more than happy to walk you through techniques you can use at home to keep your loyal companion healthy.
