Understanding Parasites

Parasites are organisms that live on or inside another organism, known as the host, and rely on the host for survival. Pets, including dogs and cats, can be affected by a variety of parasites, including fleas, ticks, and various types of worms. These parasites can cause a range of health problems for your pet, from skin irritation and itching to more serious conditions such as anemia and even death.

Prevention and Treatment

The best way to protect your pet from parasites is to prevent them from getting infected in the first place. At East & West Animal Hospital, we recommend regular veterinary check-ups and parasite screenings to detect any potential issues early on. We also offer a wide range of preventative treatments, such as flea and tick preventatives and worm medications, to keep your pet safe.

In the event that your pet does become infected with parasites, we are experienced in diagnosing and treating the problem. We offer a variety of treatment options, including medications, topical treatments, and in some cases, surgery.
