Fleas, Ticks or Mites

Animals with fleas, ticks or mites on their body may require prescription treatment to clear the infestation. Additionally, certain infectious diseases, such as Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis, can be transmitted by parasites. Worms in your animal’s stool can be an indication of a more severe gastrointestinal issue. If you notice any of these, your animal should be promptly evaluated by a veterinarian.
