Pet Parasite Prevention & Control in Jenks, OK

The prospect of your pet being plagued with parasites is unsettling, and it’s also a medical problem that can have major ramifications if not addressed or treated appropriately. Parasites can cause several health problems in our pets, which can be particularly detrimental based on age, location, and other circumstances.

Pet Parasite Prevention & Control

You may not always be able to detect parasites in your pet. Fleas can lurk under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are so small (the size of a pinhead) that they are challenging to detect. Intestinal parasites such as roundworms can cause diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and other symptoms. However, some infected pets show no signs at all.

Thankfully, our in-house laboratory can identify whether or not your pet has intestinal parasites in less than 10 minutes. We can also check your pet for fleas, ticks, and other parasites. Our knowledgeable staff can advise you on the best medications to control fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. Avoiding parasites in your pet also protects children and other family members, so let’s work together to keep your pets and your family safe.

Allow our experienced staff to offer you a comprehensive parasite control program. We can prescribe a parasite testing schedule, go over indications of parasites you can look for at home, discuss ways to control parasites in and around your home, review treatment choices if your pet has parasites, and go over ways to prevent and avoid parasites in the future.
