Parasite Control

One area of pet health that is frequently neglected is parasite control. Many common parasites go unseen by pet owners or are considered a minor or inconsequential problem. However, the impact that parasites have on an animal's health can be considerable. Parasites stress the animal's entire system and can make it vulnerable to other ailments.

Recent advances in parasite control allow us to minimize, and in some cases even eliminate, our pet's risk of common parasite infections. Internal and External Parasites can affect both animals and humans. The fact that many of your pet's potential parasites can also affect humans (zoonosis) makes it doubly important to keep your pet parasite free. Some parasites can be avoided by diligent routine prevention programs.

Fecal parasite examinations can detect if your pet currently harbours intestinal parasites. If organisms, or their eggs, are detected upon this microscopic examination appropriate medications can be dispensed to treat the infection. Fleas and Ticks are a common problem in the Vancouver area. Through routine screening and the use of safe, effective preventive products parasites can be kept at bay! Poor hair coat, inflamed itchy skin, intermittent diarrhea and poor physique can be markers for parasitism.
