Dog Parasites:
Prevention & Treatment

Dog parasites—fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, mites and worms—are more than an annoyance. They can also be hazardous to your dog's health.

Dog Parasites 101

It is important to realize that parasites are much less likely to take up residence in a healthy dog. And the best, surest way to help your dog stay healthy is by feeding him/her high-quality dog food.

Parasites feed on the host—in this case, your dog. The best approach is always prevention. But when infestation has already occurred, it's time to go quickly to Plan B—Treatment.

No matter which parasite your dog suffers from, it is, at the very least, causing discomfort. And in the most extreme, such as heartworm, the dog is at risk of dying. So the sooner a parasite problem is addressed, the better the odds that your dog will recover.
