Parasites

Parasites

Parasites effect dogs and cats and some of them effect people!  

Internal parasites left untreated can cause weight loss, anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, and malnutrition.  In puppies and kittens, parasites can overwhelm them and lead to death if left untreated or treatment started too late.  The dewormer we use at VIP Animal Care is a broad spectrum medicine, meaning it kills all types of internal parasites.  Breeders usually de-worm, but are using lower strength de-wormer that are accessible to anyone.  Don’t be offended when we still de-worm your pet even with records of breeders de-worming.  Ask us at your next wellness exam which heartworm preventatives are best for your pets as well as de-worm them.
