Pet Parasite Prevention

Parasite Prevention Saves Lives

Your pet’s well-being hinges on reliable parasite prevention. At Eno Animal Hospital we’ve seen the harrowing consequences of parasitic infections, which often result in severe complications and, in the worst cases, pose a grave threat to your pet’s health or prove fatal.

Parasites are a pet parent’s nightmare. Imagine your dog’s ears teeming with engorged ticks or your cat’s belly marred by bleeding flea bites. The distress of finding your furry companion struggling to breathe due to heartworms is heartbreaking.

The good news is we can prevent parasites! Your pet does not have to be at high risk of gross parasites. We have safe ways to shield your pet from these horrors with highly effective and safe pet parasite prevention products.

Prevention is always better than treatment, or death. Pet parasite prevention gives you many happy years of adventures, snuggling, and peace of mind.

Common Types of Pet Parasites

  • Heartworms: Transferred by infected mosquitoes, heartworms can lead to severe heart and lung damage. Prevention is key, as treatment for dogs is challenging and costly. There is no treatment for heartworms in cats, which means feline heartworms are always fatal. It only takes one bite one time for an infected mosquito to transfer heartworms to your fur baby.
  • Fleas: Fleas cause itchiness, inflammation, and allergic reactions due to their bites. Flea bites can also transmit diseases and lead to anemia.
  • Ticks: Ticks carry various gross diseases, causing symptoms like vomiting, joint pain, weakness, and neurological disorders. Tick-borne illnesses are often challenging to treat.
  • Intestinal parasites: Common ones are giardia, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. These can lead to diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, and poor body condition, plus are a pain to treat.

Did you know certain parasites are zoonotic, which means they can be transmitted from pets to humans? While it’s generally uncommon and preventable through good hygiene, it is a possibility, especially with children.

The best way to avoid parasites is year-round prevention and regular check-ups. Consistent pet parasite prevention and routine wellness care helps ensure your pet’s health and well-being.

Parasite Prevention for Every Pet, Every Month

Even an indoor-only pet is at risk of parasites, since people unwittingly track parasites into their homes all the time. Flea larvae come in on your shoes; you’ve likely found a mosquito buzzing around the house. A scientific study conducted in North Carolina found that about 28% of cats infected with heartworms were “indoor only.”

Pets need parasite prevention even in the winter. Parasitic infection is less likely during colder months but still totally possible. The healthiest pets and happiest pet parents rely on year-round parasite prevention.

Suffering and death from parasites can be easily prevented by keeping your pet on prevention products year-round. Take action to ensure your fur baby’s health and happiness.
