Prevent Cat and Dog Parasites Here in Stockton, CA

We know the iidea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.

At Bear Creek Veterinary Hospital here in Stockton, CA, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. But pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.

The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance. Flea and tick medication is an important part of keeping your pet healthy. Fleas and ticks can carry parasites that can make your puppy or kitten very sick. It is easy to protect them with monthly flea and tick prevention which typically come in a chewable treat or quick squirt to the back. Heartworm prevention comes in a variety of forms, with the options of a chewable treat, a pill, or even a shot that is effective for 6 months. No matter what prevention you choose, it’s very important that you keep your pet on heartworm prevention consistently from month-to-month. If your pet contracts heartworms during a period of time that no prevention was administered, but then prevention is continued after skipping doses, your pet is at risk for a severe allergic reaction.

Protecting your pet from a life threatening disease has never been so simple!
