What are the advantages of having a parasite prevention plan?
A parasite prevention plan includes a monthly prescription of preventative medication and hygiene techniques to ensure your cat is fully protected against parasites. Administered regularly, this can boost your cat’s immunity while also protecting them and other pets in the community from parasitic infestations.
What are some types of parasites found in cats?
Parasites can live inside the body as well as on the skin. Intestinal parasites such as roundworms, tapeworms and hookworms are commonly found in outdoor cats. External parasites such as ticks and fleas are usually found on your pet’s skin.
How else can I protect my pet against parasites?
Practicing good hygiene can help protect your pet against parasites. Regular grooming can help get rid of external parasites attached to their coat. Thoroughly washing your hands after touching your pet or their feces can also prevent cross-contamination.
