What is parasite control?
Parasite control encompasses all the steps we take to protect your pet from infestation:
- Administering parasite preventive medication year-round
- Regular checkups and testing
- Ensuring the pet’s environment is as hygienic as possible (e.g. cleaning food bowls)
Do indoor pets need parasite control?
Absolutely. They can still be exposed to parasites that enter your home. It also takes just a few seconds and an open door for pets to escape into the outdoors and be exposed.

The best way to know for sure is through a veterinary consultation at our practice. Please contact us immediately and schedule an appointment if you notice any of the following:
