Pet Parasite Prevention at Our Alexandria, VA, Practice
Fleas, ticks, worms and similar parasites do not only make life miserable for your pet; they can also hurt the health and well-being of you and your family. Unfortunately, it is all too easy for fleas to end up living on upholstery, in carpets, beds and any other locations where there is a chance of survival. Even though the common animal flea is unable to live on a human, they can certainly bite them! For the good of you and your pet, regular pet parasite treatment and veterinary services for prevention are essential.
Pet Flea Treatment and Prevention
It is not enough to simply treat the affected pet. Without taking steps to eliminate fleas from pet bedding and the rest of the home, your poor dog or cat will quickly become re-infected. Also, unless preventative measures are put in place, your animal can be vulnerable to repeat infestations, picking up fleas from other animals or simply from their surroundings. We offer complete flea prevention and treatment service, providing the sprays, tablets and other products you need for you, your pet and your home to stay parasite free.
Pet Tick Treatment and More
Our veterinarian offers a full suite of parasite treatment and prevention. Early intervention is the key; if you suspect your animal has been affected by a parasite, or they have not had recent preventative treatment, it is important to get them seen and treated as soon as possible. If left untreated, parasites can make your pet very sick. Why risk it? In addition to providing products which have been proven to get rid of ticks and fleas, we also offer effective cure and prevention for a selection of other parasites, including:
- Heart Worms
- Whip Worms
- Tape Worms
- and more
Compassionate Pet Care in Alexandria, VA
Remember that although fleas and ticks are relatively easy to spot, some parasites, particularly intestinal worms, can be more difficult to identify. If you notice that your pet is itching, has a poor skin condition, has had a change in dietary habits (eating far more or far less) or has had a change in bowel movements, a veterinary appointment to rule out parasites as a problem would be a good idea. To schedule a consultation, or to find out more, call us at (703) 360-6100.
