Parasite Prevention & Control

Safe Parasite Treatments for Pets in Mississauga

Your dog or cat is not just a ‘pet’. It’s a member of the family. Parasites cause many health problems with our pets, some of which are life threatening. It’s important keep our pets free of parasites, and to find and treat parasites quickly when they are present.

Pets can get parasites from a wide variety of places – outside, other animals, feces, from their mothers, and so on.

If your pet begins to display unusual behaviour or habits, such as diarrhea, bloody stools, loss of appetite, increased appetite, difference in water consumption, etc. , you should bring them in for an assessment.

However, most of the time our pets show no external signs of a parasitic infection.

When we discover internal parasites, we have safe and effective treatments to eliminate them and reduce the harm to your pet as much as possible. We will do our best to help control your pet’s parasites. Our ability to intervene and treat the parasites will differ, depending on the progression of the infection and type of parasite.
