At Mills Veterinary Care in Browns Mills, NJ, we prioritize the well-being of your furry companions. Part of this commitment involves protecting them from the harmful effects of internal and external parasites. While these tiny invaders might seem small, their impact on your pet's health can be significant.
Internal parasites like roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms reside within your pet's digestive system, stealing nutrients and potentially causing serious health problems like diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, and even organ damage.
Fleas and ticks are pesky external parasites that wreak havoc on your pet's skin and transmit potentially dangerous diseases like heartworm, Lyme disease, and ehrlichiosis. These diseases can lead to a range of health complications, from mild discomfort to life-threatening conditions.
The Power of Prevention
The good news is that these dangers can be largely avoided with a proactive approach to parasite prevention. This means working closely with a veterinarian near you to develop a personalized plan that protects your pet against both internal and external threats.
Heartworm disease, spread by mosquito bites, is a potentially fatal condition that affects both dogs and cats. Monthly heartworm prevention medication effectively safeguards your pet from this silent killer.
Flea and Tick Control
Regular flea and tick prevention, either through topical medications or chewable tablets, effectively prevents these external parasites from attaching to your pet and causing discomfort and transmitting diseases.
Tailored Solutions for Optimal Protection
The type of parasite prevention required for your pet will depend on their age, breed, lifestyle, and risk factors. At Mills Veterinary Care, we will perform a thorough examination and assess your pet's individual needs to recommend the most effective and appropriate prevention solutions.
