Prevention is the best cure ever.

Keep Your Pet Safe with
Parasite Prevention

Parasites can cause discomfort and health risks for your pet. At ABC Veterinary Clinic of Lewisville, we advocate for pet parasite prevention designed to protect your cat or dog from both ectoparasites, like fleas and ticks, and endoparasites, including intestinal worms and heartworms. Keeping your pet parasite-free is not just about comfort—it’s a crucial part of maintaining their overall health and well-being.


Battling Ectoparasites: Fleas and Ticks

Fleas and ticks are among the most common ectoparasites that afflict pets. Not only can they cause severe itching and discomfort, but these pet parasites also pose health risks, including the transmission of diseases like Lyme disease (ticks) and tapeworms (fleas).

Signs of Flea and Tick Infestations

  • Excessive scratching, licking, or biting at the skin
  • Unexplained red patches, hair loss, or skin irritations
  • The presence of tiny black specks (flea dirt) or the pet parasites themselves on your companion’s fur

ABC Veterinary Clinic of Lewisville provides effective topical or oral parasite preventatives to protect your pet from these pesky invaders.

Protection Against Endoparasites: Intestinal Worms and Heartworms

Endoparasites such as heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms can inhabit your pet’s internal organs, often without immediate signs of infection. These pet parasites can cause a range of health issues, from digestive disturbances to severe heart and lung damage.

Signs That Your Pet May Have an Endoparasite

  • Diarrhea, possibly with blood
  • Weight loss or poor weight gain
  • A dry or rough coat
  • Visible worms in the stool or vomit
  • In the case of heartworms, coughing, fatigue, and decreased appetite

Our veterinarians can perform pet parasite screenings, such as heartworm testing or fecal testing, to accurately diagnose and provide appropriate treatments, including deworming and preventive medications.

Protect Your Pet

Preventing pet parasite infestations is far easier and more cost-effective than treating them. At ABC Veterinary Clinic of Lewisville, we recommend year-round preventive treatments for both ectoparasites and endoparasites to ensure your pets stay healthy and comfortable. Our preventive care includes:

  • Regular Parasitic Testing: Screening for the presence of parasites even if no symptoms are apparent.
  • Parasite Preventive Medications: Monthly treatments to prevent infestations of fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal worms.
  • Education: Offering guidance on how to protect your pets and home environment from parasites.

Parasite preventative care will be based on your pet’s specific needs, considering factors like age, breed, health status, and lifestyle. Our goal is to provide a protective shield for your pets against all common parasites, ensuring they lead a happy, healthy life free from the discomfort and danger of infestations.
