When a pet owner thinks of parasites in relation to their pet, most typically think of external parasites such as fleas and ticks, since they can actually see them on their pet. Yet, the parasites that are the most destructive to your pet's health are the ones that you cannot see—internal parasites. Some internal parasites include hookworm, whipworm, tapeworm, roundworm, and heartworm.
What can you do to protect your household pets from parasites? Here are some guidelines to follow:
If you decide to treat your pet with over-the-counter wormers, make sure that you follow the direction label on the product, and make certain that you tell your vet of the medicines you have administered to your pet. Overmedicating your pet—or worming too often, with several different products—can prove fatal.
