Eliminating and controlling parasites is another important preventative measure.

Common Internal Parasites

Common internal parasites are heartworms and intestinal worms. The more common intestinal worms are roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms.

Part of any wellness examination should include testing for these internal parasites. A fecal examination is a simple procedure used for detecting intestinal worm eggs. A blood test is used to check for heart worms. With our warm sub-tropical climate, parasites are a very common cause of illness in pets.

Common External Parasites

Flea control and preventing ticks are also important parasites that need to be considered in any preventative pet health care program.
