Pet Flea & Tick Preventatives & Treatment

Fleas can lurk under your pet’s fur, and some ticks (the size of a pinhead) are difficult to detect. Roundworms and other intestinal parasites can cause diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and other symptoms, although some infected pets show no signs.

We can suggest a physical exam, discuss treatment choices if your pet has parasites, and look at ways to control and avoid parasites in the future.

Both of these critters can induce dermatitis, causing your pet to scratch at the skin so hard that it causes injuries that promote bacterial infection. Fleas can carry tapeworms, cat scratch disease, and even bubonic plague, whereas ticks can transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Ehrlichia, and Lyme disease to your pet. Anemia caused by blood loss can be lethal in sick, aged, or young animals.
