Parasite Prevention

Parasite Prevention

This is a crucial component of responsible pet parenthood

Parasites aren’t just annoying.

They also spread disease and can cause serious health problems in companion animals. Many can spread to humans, too. Both external and internal parasites cause a variety of diseases, some of which can put your furry family member’s life in jeopardy. For this reason, parasite prevention is a crucial component of responsible pet parenthood. At SimpleVet Pet Hospital, we’re here to help. We offer parasite prevention in Little Elm and will help you give your canine companion or feline friend a healthy, pest-free life.

Common Parasites and Complications

Some of the most common external parasites include fleas, ticks, skin mites, and ear mites. And heartworm, giardia, and intestinal parasites are the most prevalent external parasites. Parasite infestations cause a wide range of symptoms. Depending on what type of parasite(s) your pet has, they could experience:
  • Excessive itchiness
  • General discomfort
  • Lethargy
  • Pale gums
  • Decreased appetite
  • Skin infections
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
Intestinal parasites, or “worms,” may also appear in your pet’s feces. However, not all worms can be detected by observing an animal’s feces with the naked eye.

Preventing Parasites

Keeping your pet on preventatives year-round is the best way to protect them from parasites. We recommend flea, tick, and heartworm prevention along with annual screenings for heartworm and intestinal parasites. We offer a wide range of safe and highly effective products and will help you choose the one best suited to your furry friend’s needs.
