Parasites come in many different shapes and sizes. Some are internal (intestinal worms, heartworms, etc.) and some are external (fleas, ticks, ear mites, etc.). They can be obvious to the naked eye or impossible to see without the aid of a microscope.
We can screen your pet for a variety of parasites, including:
All of our canine patients are screened yearly for heartworms, per the recommendations of The American Heartworm Society and the veterinary universites. They are also screened for intestinal parasites and the presence of fleas and ticks.
Feline patients are screened yearly for intestinal parasites and the presence of fleas and ticks, as well as ear mites if suspected.
