Pet Parasite Prevention

The prevention of parasites and the diseases they transmit is possible with the use of the right treatment and care. In addition to irritating your pet, fleas and ticks can carry diseases and have a negative impact on their health. Heartworm is a harmful parasite that infects the heart muscle and can be fatal in dogs and cats.

Heartworm and Intestinal Parasite
Ticks are external parasites that survive by sucking blood from other animals. They are the primary means by which illnesses like Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever spread from one animal to another.
Fleas are tiny, leaping insects that feed on animal blood. They frequently cause allergic dermatitis "extreme itching" in pets and can spread harmful infections.
Heartworm and Intestinal Parasite

We want to ensure that your pet is protected against this readily avoidable disease because heartworm is such a serious issue. Every year, as part of a routine examination, your pet will be tested for heartworm, and Cityscape Vets on Excelsior will prescribe a monthly heartworm preventive medication that also eliminates intestinal parasites for your pet to take throughout the year. Every time you bring your pet in for a visit, we will look over his or her unique records and administer any necessary vaccine boosters.
