Parasite infestations can range from minor nuisances to major health problems for pets. Preventing these infestations from occurring is the best way to protect your pet from potentially serious illnesses. At Anza Animal Clinic in Westlake Village, we offer parasite prevention for pets to keep them safe from fleas, ticks, worms and other parasites.
There are different types that can infect cats and dogs, but some are more common than others. Common parasites include fleas, which can cause skin irritation, and ticks that can spread tick-borne illnesses, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. Other parasites include heartworm, which can cause potentially life-threatening illness in dogs and cats without proper treatment. Intestinal worms, such as roundworms, are another kind of parasite that infects pets.
Finding evidence of a parasite infestation early helps improve your pet’s chances of being successfully treated without developing a serious illness. Routine checkups allow our vet to check your pet’s stool, urine, and blood for signs of parasite infestations. Our vet will also look over your dog or cat’s skin for signs of fleas, such as flea bites. If your pet has an infestation, our vet will discuss treatment options with you to eliminate these pests. Keep in mind that older dogs and cats, puppies, kittens and pets with immune problems are more at risk of having serious complications or reactions to parasite infestations.
If your pet does not have any parasites, our Westlake Village vet will go over preventative measures with you. These might include taking an oral pill to prevent heartworm and using flea and tick preventative products to provide your pet with protection from these parasites. Using preventative products helps reduce your pet’s risk of ending up with an infestation that requires treatment. There are different kinds of products available, including oral preventative pills. Our vet can help you choose the right kind to protect your dog or cat from common parasites in the area.
If your pets need parasite prevention, please contact Anza Animal Clinic to set up an appointment. Our vet in Westlake Village provides this type of care for pets in and around the area, including Westlake Village, Lake Sherwood, Newbury Park, Agoura Hills and Oak Park.
