Parasite Prevention

Parasites can be life-threatening for your cat or dog if left untreated. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your pet from these common parasites:


Fleas are small, wingless external parasites that consume blood of birds and mammals.


These small, blood-sucking parasites attach to mammals. They may spread disease.

Ear Mites

Tiny ear mites live in mammals' ear canals and are highly contagious. Outdoor cats are most at risk.


Parasitic heartworms are spread through mosquito bites and can cause serious disease.


Hookworms reside in the digestive system and can cause serious illness in dogs and cats.


Parasitic roundworms feed on intestinal contents and deprive animals of nutrients.


Flat, segmented tapeworms reside in your pet's intestines and cause health problems.


This common intestinal parasite causes severe irritation and has a whip-like appearance.
