Why is prevention important?
Parasite prevention is not only important for the health of your pet, but also for the health of you and your family. Parasites can carry deadly diseases and cause detrimental conditions. Dogs and cats are susceptible to numerous parasitic infections, several of which possess the ability to infect people. A routine regimen of parasite control and prevention is very important.
Internal parasites such as hookworms and roundworms are a big concern as well to both pets and humans. Dogs and cats infected with these worms contaminate their surroundings by passing eggs or larvae in their feces. These eggs and larvae are resilient and can survive in areas like playgrounds, parks, and your own back yard!
Flea and tick prevention is a very important part of your pet's well being. Prevention of fleas is easier and more cost effective than dealing with a flea infestation which can last several months and cause many health concerns. Fleas can cause skin irritation, anemia, tapeworms, skin infection, severe itching, hair loss, severe weakness, or even death of your pet. Tick prevention can save your pet from Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and many other tick-borne diseases.
