Protecting your pet against internal and external parasites.
Parasites are small creatures that cause serious harm to your pet’s health. Your pet can be infected with whipworm, hookworm, coccidia, roundworm, tapeworm, heartworm, ticks, fleas, and mites. Parasites are clever and can hide inside your home or outdoors. A parasitic infection can cause irreversible organ damage, death and some can even spread to the humans in the household. For these reasons, parasite prevention and control are essential for all pets.
Following a year-round prevention plan is the best way to give your pet protection. This offers your pet protection at all times, even when you think certain parasites aren’t active.
