At Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital, we highly encourage the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect you, and your pet. Depending on age, region of residence, and daily activities, Parasites can post a variety of health issues to your furry family members.
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 properly dealt with or prevented. Additionally, the cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive for you, and stressful on your pet. Certain parasites, such as heartworm, can even be fatal. Therefore, prevention of all parasites is yet another one of our top priorities.
