There are many types of parasites that can affect our pets in Louisiana, and you should contact a veterinarian as soon as they are seen. External parasites include ear mites, fleas, lice, mites and other parasites that can be observed on our pets. Internally, parasites such as hookworms and roundworms can not only affect our pets, but can also be transmitted to young children as well. Finally, some internal parasites such as heartworms can kill our pets.
A better way than waiting to find parasites is to prevent them. As with other conditions discussed in our website, prevention of parasites is less expensive than treating them after they are found. Brandon Veterinary Clinic carries a range of new and effective products to protect your pet from both internal as well as external parasites.
