Understanding Pet Parasites

Parasites, such as fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms, may seem inconspicuous, but their impact on your pet’s health can be significant. These unwelcome guests can lead to a range of health issues, from skin irritations to more severe conditions.

The Pet Parasite Control Service

Our pet parasite control service at Cat & Dog Hospital Of Columbia focuses on providing tailored solutions that address your pets’ unique needs. We understand that every pet is different, and our approach is to create a customized plan that ensures effective parasite prevention and control.

The Benefits of Pet Parasite Control

Preventing Skin Irritations

Parasites like fleas can cause persistent itching and skin irritations in pets. Our control measures are designed to keep these nuisances at bay, ensuring your pet’s skin remains healthy and uncomfortable-free.

Protecting Against Tick-Borne Diseases

Ticks are not only irritating but can also transmit serious diseases. Our parasite control services help protect your pets from these external threats, minimizing the risk of tick-borne illnesses.

Preventing Intestinal Worm Infestations

Internal parasites can cause a range of gastrointestinal issues in pets. Our control measures aim to prevent and manage intestinal worm infestations, promoting digestive health.

When is it Necessary to Take Your Pet for Parasite Control?

Puppy/Kitten Stage

Start early to establish a foundation for a parasite-free life. Puppies and kittens are more susceptible to parasites, and early intervention sets the stage for a healthier adulthood.

Seasonal Concerns

Parasite prevalence often fluctuates with the seasons. Spring and summer, particularly, are high-risk periods for fleas and ticks. Regular parasite control during these times is crucial.

Outdoor Activities

If your pet enjoys outdoor activities like hiking or playing in grassy areas, they may be more exposed to parasites. Regular check-ups and control measures become even more critical for pets with an active outdoor lifestyle.
