Parasite Prevention

Parasites pose a continual and often pervasive threat to the well-being of pets and their owners. Given their year-round prevalence and diverse environments, it's highly probable that your pet will encounter parasites at some point in their lives. Some parasites even have the potential to transmit from animals to humans.

At Vegas Valley Pet Hospital, we offer a spectrum of prevention and treatment methods to safeguard your pet from parasites. Alongside veterinary care, we provide educational guidance on available medication options for future parasite prevention. Before initiating preventive measures, we guide you through the testing process, ensuring a tailored approach to your pet's needs.

Parasites are generally categorized as internal (such as worms) and external (such as fleas, ticks, and mites). Vegas Valley Pet Hospital specializes in prevention and treatment services for various common parasites, including:

  • Flea & Tick Prevention and Treatment: Addressing irritations and potential diseases carried by ticks, our safe and effective preventive methods include medicated treats administered once a month.
  • Ear Mite Treatment: Effectively managing ear mites, which can cause severe itching and swelling, and if untreated, may lead to bacterial infections and deafness.
  • Internal Parasite Prevention and Treatment: Targeting common internal parasites like giardia, hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms through early detection, prevention, and effective treatment.
  • Heartworm Prevention: Combating the spread of deadly heartworms, transmitted through mosquitoes, with simple and preventable monthly medication. This prevents long-lasting heart damage and potential sudden death.
