Parasite Prevention

Intestinal Parasite Testing: 

Yearly fecal exams are an important part of keeping your pet healthy. We at Bethel Animal Hospital recommend a fecal exam at each wellness visit. Fecal exams help test for a variety of intestinal parasites such as Roundworms, Hookworms, Whipworms, and Tapeworms. All of which can be transferred to humans.

Intestinal parasites are most commonly found in puppies and kittens and can be treated with deworming. If not treated, parasites can be deadly. They can cause dehydration through excessive vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. 

Heartworm Testing:

Fleas, ticks and mosquitos are not just a summer problem! Warming temperatures mean year-round prevention is key to making sure your pet is protected from the diseases these pests carry. Fleas often trigger flea allergy dermatitis, and one tick bite can transmit numerous diseases. Heartworm disease is spread by mosquitos and year-round prevention is recommended.
