Parasite Prevention

Parasites pose a serious health threat to people and animals in East Setauket and the surrounding area. Left untreated, parasites can threaten the life of your cat or dog, and in some cases can even be transmitted to other people or pets living in your household. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from the following common parasites:

Fleas

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

Ticks

These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for the spread of several serious conditions and diseases among pets. 

Ear Mites

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

Heartworm

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

Hookworm

These parasites live in the digestive tract of cats and dogs, where they feed on the pet's blood. Hookworms can lead to serious health conditions.

Roundworm

This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of vital, life-sustaining nutrients.

Tapeworm

Tapeworms are spread by eating infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet's intestines. 

Whipworm

Whipworms spread by eating soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
