Fleas, Ticks, and Other Common Pet Parasites Seen By Our Clinton Hill Veterinarian

Every pet needs a customized parasite prevention regimen, to reflect their unique needs and risks. For example, some dogs spend time in wooded areas, increasing their risks of tick exposure. However, it's important to be aware of all the parasites that could pose a problem for your pet. Our animal hospital in Brooklyn offers preventative products and treatments for the following parasites:  

  • Fleas – External parasites that can infest you and your environment; prevention is much easier than elimination, and infestations can cause constant itching, allergic reactions, blood loss, and infections like Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD)

  • Ticks – These disease-carrying parasites hide in low, thick brush or grasses and are related to mites and spiders; ticks cause serious and possibly life-threatening illnesses like Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF)  

  • Mites – Ear mites, mange, and other mite infestations are painful and debilitating for pets, so it's important to catch them early or prevent them with thorough hygiene and wellness regimens

  • Worms – Internal parasites can wreak havoc on vital organs, so it's important to stop fleas, ticks, mosquitos, and other parasites before your pets ingest larvae and develop infestations. Common worms for dogs and cats include intestinal worms and heartworm infestations

How to Prevent Internal and External Parasites

Your pet needs regular preventative products to effectively prevent fleas and ticks. These products also prevent a variety of worms and mites, but our vet may recommend additional products to prevent heartworm and other internal parasites. After we recommend the right products for your family, it will be your responsibility to administer them on a monthly or bimonthly basis. Your options include oral and topical medications, which will make your pet's blood or skin "inhospitable" hosts for would-be parasites.

Treatments for Pet Parasites

If your dog or cat already has internal or external parasites, make an appointment at Clinton Hill Animal Clinic. Our Brooklyn veterinary team offers deworming, flea baths, and treatments for heartworm, hookworm, and other internal parasites.

Testimonials

To Dr Dendtler and Staff, I cant begin to tell you how impressed I am with the loving care you have given to my cat Baxter, before and after the much needed surgery. Baxter is so pleased with the outcome; he goes around purring all day.

Thanks again.

Dear Pamella, We want to thank all of you so much, not only for the loving care and consideration you showed us last Thursday when we had to say goodbye to Gericho but also for all the years of check-ups and other crisis' that we went through with him. We know it was your good efforts that allowed him to live a full and vigorous 16 years that gave us so much pleasure. Please know that we have always found your staff to be so courteous and helpful all these years.

Thank you.
