Pet Heartworm, Flea, and Tick Prevention and Treatment
Parasites and the diseases they transmit can all be avoided with proper medicine and care. Fleas and ticks are not only an irritant to your pet, but they can also carry disease and harm your pet’s health. Heartworms are a harmful parasite that dwell in the heart of dogs and cats, causing heart muscle damage and death.
Fleas are tiny, leaping insects that feed on animal blood. They can transmit hazardous infections and frequently cause allergic dermatitis, “severe itching” in pets.
Ticks are external parasites that feed on animal body fluids. They can transmit infections from one animal to the next and are the primary source of disease transmission for Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
Heartworms are parasites that can dwell in the hearts of cats and dogs. Mosquitoes spread the worm between infected animals. One worm can cause sudden death in a pet, while other pets can have several hundred worms dwelling in their heart. This parasite infestation causes severe damage to your pet’s heart and lungs and can be fatal.
Prevention can be life and death when it comes to your pet’s health.
