Here at Whittier Dog & Cat Hospital, we are dedicated to taking good care of our patients. We are proud to offer intestinal parasite screening and deworming.
Intestinal parasites not only hurt your pets but also can cause damage to you too, so it is really important to us to offer intestinal parasite screening and routine deworming.
Intestinal parasites often make pets hungry. Many suffer from diarrhea and even vomiting. They can’t gain or maintain weight because the parasites are using all of the food the pets eat to grow and cause more damage.
Intestinal parasites can do the same damage to the human body. Some forms can even cause blindness in children, so it is important to check your pets for parasites routinely and deworm them regularly. It is for your own health too!
With a simple stool sample, we are able to screen for parasites so that we can deworm patients with the best dewormer. Every dewormer targets different parasites, which is why screening is so important. Still, there are times when we deworm pets regularly just to keep them and their owners safe.
