Parasites are a common concern for animals and the people who take care of them. Until we had a firm grasp on controlling fleas and ticks, dogs and cats did not live in our homes and bedrooms. The discovery that the veterinary medications, specifically animal pesticides, used in agriculture could be reformulated into safe, effective and low-volume treatments for dogs and cats changed how we live with our pets.
Today there are a large number of products that help us to control the parasites that live on (ectoparasites – fleas, ticks) and in (endoparasites - worms) our pets. These products give our pets relief from itching, prevent diseases such as Lyme or Heartworm, and help ensure that the people our pets live with do not become infected too.
Talk to your veterinarian about the best products for your pet based on his or her lifestyle.
