Parasite Prevention in Exotic Pets

Does your pet look healthy? Are you sure they have no parasites like fleas, mites, or something more dangerous like roundworms? A wellness exam gives you confidence that your pet is in great health by making sure they get the right blood tests, x-rays, or other diagnostic testing they may need to make sure they are parasite free. Your family's health may also be at stake depending on the parasite your pet contracts. Only an exotic veterinarian can determine if your pet has a problem with worms or other parasites. He or she can help you decide the best way to treat the problem and make sure your pet lives a long and happy life.

Importance of parasite prevention in exotic pets

There are two types of parasites that your exotic pet must be monitored for by an expert. Internal parasites like tapeworm and hookworms and external parasites, such as fleas, ticks, and mites. Internal parasites are common in exotic pets and may spread to humans if treatment is not quick and proper hygiene not followed. Fleas, mites, and ticks carry many diseases like Lymes disease, spotted fever, tapeworms, and other syndromes that can cause your pet to be sick or shorten the years you have with your pet. You want your pet to be happy, healthy, and safe, plus keeping your pet healthy is an excellent idea for protecting the health of the family.
