Protection from Worms

You want to have your pets start on parasite prevention while they are young, especially if you are adopting them from a shelter. You otherwise run the risk of having your pet infested with parasite. It can be annoying to try to get them to take their medication but there are a lot of ways that it can be administered.

Your pet can get several different worms. One is tapeworm. Your pet can get tapeworm by ingesting a flea that has been infected, whether through grooming or biting an itchy area. 

There are also injections that can be administered by a vet. It's only a single injection but it can help ensure that your cat or dog stays worm-free for a long time. You might have to do it annually, depending on your situation. 

Flea and Tick Prevention

Flea and tick prevention is easy to administer in most cases. You can give your pet topical ointments to protect him against infestation and you can also give him chewable. 

It may be a good idea to monitor your pet and make sure that he is pest free. If you notice anything unusual in his behavior or if he is weight, have him looked at. You can have a vet on our veterinary team take a look at your pet and make sure that he is free from anything that could hurt him. You can then enjoy spending time with your animal companion.
