Steps to Preventing Internal Parasites:
~ Have puppies and kittens dewormed at an early age.
~ Keep your pets on a preventive, we recommend Heartgard or Sentinel.
~ Learn to recognize and avoid possibly contaminated soil, sand, plants and other objects.Teach children to do the same
~ Keep play areas, lawns, and gardens around your home free of animal waste.
We recommend for all our our patients that a yearly fecal test be done to be sure your pet is free of internal parasites. We also recommend that your pet receive heartworm and internal parasite preventatives year round since exposure to internal parasites can occur year round. Birds, rabbits, and rodents are common carries of these parasites.
