PARASITE PREVENTION AND CONTROL

Parasites can causes serious illness in your pets and in some instances may even cause death.You may not be able to tell if your pet has parasites.Fleas and ticks are small and may be difficult to see.Pets with intestinal parasites may develop diarrhea, but sometimes do not show symptoms.

Ticks may transmit Lyme disease, fleas transmit tapeworms, and mosquitos may transmit heartworm.Some parasites, like roundworms and hookworms may be transmitted to humans as well.

Heartworms live in your pet's lungs and heart causing damage to the organs and even may cause death. A Heartworm test is the only way to know if your pet has heartworms.This test should be performed annually even if you give your pet heartworm preventive each month.

Our team at Rand Road Animal Hospital can examine your pets for external parasites and perform tests to discover intestinal parasites.We recommend preventative products such as Frontline Gold or Nexgard to prevent fleas and ticks, and Heartgard Plus to prevent heartworm and intestinal parasites.

Take an active role in your pet's health by scheduling an annual wellness exam.

My animals are safe and loved when I bring them, there's no where else I'd consider taking them. I'll do the 30 mile drive for that."
