External Antiparasitic Agents

It is extremely important to have our pets free of fleas and ticks not only for hygienic reasons but also because they can transmit diseases such as tapeworms (fleas) or ehrlichiosis, rickettsiosis (ticks).

Also, fleas can cause in both dogs and cats, an allergic problem known as flea allergic dermatitis.   The skin is swollen and red and the animal suffers of intense itching.

External antiparasites that are found in the market are varied, both in ingredients and form of application (shampoos, sprays, powders, spot-ons, collars…).  It is important to ask us since it will depend on the animal, living conditions, if there are dogs and cats living together, etc.

Internal Antiparasitic Agents
Intestinal parasite infestations are very common especially in the first few months of life and thus it is of utmost important to follow a good deworming program with products that cover nematodes (roundworms) and cestodes (tapeworms).  These treatments should be carried out at least every 3 months during the whole lifetime of the pet.

There are some intestinal parasites that are not covered by this treatment. If your animal shows signs of intestinal parasitism (diarrhea, unrestfulness while sleeping, poor quality of the hair coat, feces alternating normal with diarrhea, anal pruritus) a fecal test should be done in order to diagnose coccidiosis and/or giardiasis and treat accordingly.
