Parasite Prevention

Parasites pose a serious health threat to people and animals in the Metrowest area.

Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from the following common parasites:


Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. Left untreated, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.


These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for spreading several serious conditions in people and pets. 

Ear Mites

Tiny, contagious ear mites live in the ear canals of dogs, cats, and other mammals. They reproduce continuously throughout their life. 


This thread-like parasitic roundworm is spread through mosquito bites and makes a home in the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of infected pets.


These parasites live in the digestive tract of pets where they feed on blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia and other conditions.


This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested food. This parasite can rob your pet of nutrients necessary to stay healthy.


Tapeworms are spread through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet's intestines. 


Whipworms are spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
