Parasite Control

Parasite control is an integral part of pet healthcare, addressing both external (ectoparasites) and internal (endoparasites) parasites.

  • Information on heartworm prevention

Periodontal disease is highlighted as a significant concern leading to dental problems and potential organ damage. The category emphasizes regular oral health assessments and discusses both home dental care measures and professional dental procedures.

  • Recommendations for home dental health care
  • Explanation of professional dental care procedures (COHAT)

Why is year-round parasite prevention necessary for my pet?

Year-round prevention is crucial to protect your pet from both external and internal parasites. It minimizes the risk of diseases and ensures the well-being of your pet and family.

What are zoonotic risks, and how can I minimize them?

Zoonotic risks refer to diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans. To minimize these risks, practice good hygiene, avoid consuming unwashed raw food, and promptly clean up pet feces.

How can I tell if my pet has dental problems?

Regular oral health assessments during veterinary check-ups are essential to identify dental problems. Look for signs such as bad breath, difficulty eating, or pawing at the mouth.

Why is anesthesia necessary for professional dental care?

Anesthesia ensures the safety and comfort of the pet during dental procedures, allowing for thorough examination, cleaning, and any necessary extractions.

What can I do at home to maintain my pet's dental health?

Home dental care measures include regular tooth brushing, dental treats and rinses, and specialized dental diets. These practices contribute to preventing the onset of dental disease.

Is dental care only about preventing tooth loss, or does it have broader health implications?

Dental care is essential not only for preventing tooth loss but also for avoiding potential damage to vital organs such as the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys. Good oral health contributes to overall well-being.
