Pet Parasite Control
Parasites are organisms that inhabit or consume other living things.
Parasites are organisms that inhabit or consume other living things. Fleas and ticks are the most well-known offenders, despite contributing only a small portion of the problem. Other common parasites that affect pets include mites, lice, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. A pet can experience everything from minor annoyances to life-threatening illnesses if parasite infestations are left untreated. Parasites in our pets endanger our health as well.
Fleas are by far the most common parasite on cats and dogs. These insects, in addition to causing skin irritation, spread bacteria that cause cat scratch fever as well as other parasites and diseases such as tapeworms. Heartworms can be transmitted to our pets through mosquito bites. Ticks can spread dangerous infections that can cause Lyme disease, paralysis, anemia, and other complications. Ear mites can irritate our pets’ ears and cause them to scratch excessively. This can cause blood vessels in the ear to burst and the tissue to inflate with blood. These are just a few examples of parasites that our pets may encounter. We provide pet parasite control in Palm Beach Gardens and are here to help your furry friend live a healthy, pest-free life.
