Parasite control is an important part of your dog or cat’s overall health plan. A parasite control regiment should start when your pet is young and continue throughout their lifetime. Most parasites fall into 2 basic categories which are integral and external parasites. At Terrace Heights Family Pet Clinic we follow the CDC recommendations and guidelines for parasite control for both cats and dogs. In general, we recommend parasite preventatives that protect against internal and external parasites as well as offer recommendations that are tailored to fit your pet’s unique health needs.
