Parasites can cause problems for pets ranging from minor to life-threatening. These parasites can cause severe itching, irritation, and sores. Some, like fleas, can also transmit tapeworms and diseases. Parasites can infest all species: birds, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, other exotic mammals, reptiles, dogs and cats. Some parasites don’t just stay on pets; they can bite or infest people, too. For more information, contact us to make an appointment to discuss if parasites are a concern for your pet.
Some of these parasites may not only live on your pet, but may also thrive off your pet in their environment or even in your house. We can help keep them away or help you get rid of them if they’ve already found their way inside. Call our Toronto clinic to find out how to eliminate and control parasites or to start your pet on a preventive today.
