Intestinal Parasites are Everywhere

Spring means more outside time for our four legged friends. The great outdoors, however, can be a dangerous place for your pet. In the U.S., more than 1 of every 3 adult dogs are positive for roundworms, hookworms or whipworms and over 90% of all puppies and kittens are infected with these same worms. Tapeworm infection is also prevalent and can be contracted from fleas or hunting rabbits and rodents.

Coccidia and Giardia form cysts in the intestinal wall, often causing persistent diarrhea. These are usually picked up from the environment, or by hunting small rodents and other small animals.

Parasite eggs are shed by the thousands into the environment and a single, untreated puppy can deposit millions of eggs into your yard in less than a week. Exposure to contaminated areas can lead to infection. After attachment to the lining of the intestine, the worms will feed on blood and other nutrients. This results in blood loss, diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss and even death if severe.

People and especially children can become infected by contact with many of these same parasites. This has been an increasing concern. Veterinarians, physicians and scientists have worked together to develop recommendations to protect your pets and other family members.

Intestinal parasite prevention can be accomplished safely and effectively with the help of your local veterinarian. Protocols, procedures and medications can be discussed and implemented based on your pet’s medical history and risk for exposure.

Protect your pet from these intestinal invaders!!
