Facebook Pet Parasite Control in West Los Angeles - Animal Medical Center

Parasite Control

In order to effectively protect your pet from internal and external parasites and the diseases they transmit, an effective protocol will be developed by our veterinarians to individually address the parasites your pet will encounter based upon whether they are indoor or indoor/outdoor, the locale in which you reside, and whether or not they travel with you locally or distantly. Fleas and ticks can transmit diseases as well as be a nuisance. The most commonly utilized medications utilized at our facility are listed below. By no means is this a comprehensive list. As you can see, the choice of which medication to use can be complicated and is based upon the parasites, which may be encountered based upon your pet’s activities and risk of exposure. Parasite control is an important part of our health maintenance program. Both cats and dogs are susceptible to internal and external parasites. Keeping your pet free from preventable parasites keeps your pet healthy and provides an important barrier that prevents transmission of companion animal parasites to your family members.
