Parasite Control And Prevention Leads To A Happy Pet
The harm from parasite to a pet’s health can range from minor irritation to serious conditions that, if untreated, can be fatal. Parasites also pose a threat to human health. Some pet parasites cause zoonotic infections – meaning they can be transferred from pets to humans.

Preventing parasite infections
With advances in veterinary medicine, most parasitic infections can be prevented. However, pet owners may not be fully aware of the appropriate measures to protect their pets and, in turn, themselves and their families.
The first step is the practice of good personal hygiene, which includes always washing hands after handling pets and before eating food. Grooming animals regularly helps to reduce the risk of coat contamination. To protect people and the environment, cleaning up pet feces regularly is important because most intestinal worms are transmitted by the passage of worm eggs or larvae in feces.
