When it comes to managing your furry family member’s health, we believe prevention is always the best medicine. One of the most important components of animal health care involves taking the appropriate measures to prevent and control parasites. Whether it’s external pests, like fleas and ticks, or internal parasites, keeping them away from your companion is key.
At Angel Animal Hospital, we take parasite management serious. Our primary goal is to develop a customized strategy that’s designed to proactively avoid parasites altogether. This may include recommending the use of certain preventative products, or it could involve prescription medicine. Each pet is evaluated based on his or her unique lifestyle and risk factors to ensure a more tailored approach for optimum results.

Sentinel: Monthly chewable to prevent from fleas, heartworm and intestinal parasites

We also utilize a number of advanced diagnostic testing tools to help us identify the signs of existing parasites. For instance, our in-house laboratory allows us to analyze samples to detect parasites quickly so they can be addressed in the most effective manner possible. As with our preventative care, the way we treat parasites is always customized to suit each individual patient.
