Parasite Prevention

Safe and efficient parasite prevention.

The prospect of your dog or cat

being plagued with parasites is unsettling.
Even though you may not want to consider it, though, these vile creatures can cause a number of health problems when not dealt with right away. At Mariemont Veterinary Clinic, we think that parasite prevention is essential since it is far simpler to avoid an infestation than to treat one. Because of this, we provide parasite prevention and control in Cincinnati and urge all of our patients to take advantage of this crucial service.

What You Should Know About Pet Parasites

Both internal and external parasites can infest cats and dogs. The parasites you are most familiar with are most likely external ones. They consist of ear mites, skin mites, ticks, and fleas. The term "worms" is frequently used to describe internal parasites, including hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, heartworms, and giardia. Your pet may have a number of symptoms if they have any of these parasites, such as:
  • Excessive licking, chewing, or scratching
  • Itchy skin
  • Weeping of the skin
  • General discomfort
  • Pale gums
  • Lethargy
  • Decreased appetite
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Gas
The feces of infected pets occasionally contain worms or their eggs. However, they aren't always visible to the naked eye. For this reason, tests are often required to determine whether pets have internal parasites.

Infestations with parasites can cause persistent skin infections, serious gastrointestinal issues, and even death if they are not properly treated. In addition, a lot of parasites can spread to people.
