How to Protect Your Pet from Internal and External Parasites

Parasite preventatives are your pet’s best defense against parasitic infections. Flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives are a must, and should be given year-round to keep your dog or cat healthy. An additional measure you can take to reduce your pet’s exposure to internal parasites like roundworms is to keep your pet from sniffing around another dog’s feces, and to pick up your pet’s waste right away instead of leaving it in the yard. You should also subscribe to yearly parasite checks for your pet to screen for evidence of worms.
