The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not dealt with or prevented properly. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.
At The Vets Animal Hospital, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through the use of preventatives, you can successfully protect your pet. But pets that are not protected often develop parasites, which leads to serious problems for them and their owners.
The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even become serious enough to be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance.
