Fleas, Ticks, Mites – It’s Too Much to Handle!
Your pet’s fur is the perfect place for pests to hide and live. It gives them the ability to feed and reproduce right in your home. However, these critters negatively impact your pet’s health and can cause problems within your home as well. That’s why it is so important to take action to prevent infestations whenever possible or to get treatment as quickly as possible.
If you see a flea, there’s likely a large and growing infestation present. Pets that scratch and bite their skin are suffering from pain and itching as the result of pests in many cases. You may even see small, wingless brown spots on the skin’s surface.
Parasite Prevention & Control Options
When you visit our offices in Winston-Salem, parasite prevention & control is a primary part of caring for your pet. We offer solutions for most types of pests and parasites that commonly impact your pet’s health.
Fleas and Mites: Pets with fleas and ticks need treatment products designed for the size and type of animal you have. We offer high-quality products designed to kill existing fleas and ticks as well as their eggs. This provides long-term treatment.
Ticks: Ticks often impact dogs during the summer time and are a high risk for Lyme disease. As a result, if you suspect your pet has been bitten by a tick, he or she needs treatment as soon as possible. We’ll carefully remove the tick, treat any wound, and offer medications to keep your pet healthy.
Internal Parasites: Sometimes, these pests are inside your pet and just as dangerous. Internal parasites often cause bloody diarrhea. Roundworms, hookworms, and other types of parasites require treatment to prevent more significant health problems.
