Parasite Control to Protect You and Your Pet
The doctors and staff at Wilderness Animal Hospital know you have many options when it comes to flea and parasite control. We want to make your decisions easy and hope this handout helps you make the best decision.
We all feel prevention is the best approach to dealing with parasites. When choosing a parasite control product you need to ask yourself, “Do I want to prevent having a problem, or wait until I have a problem and then treat it?” We think prevention is the answer and that is why we have chosen the following products:
For cats we use Revolution. Using this product monthly, throughout the year will kill adult fleas, prevent flea infestation, intestinal worms, ear mites and heartworm.
For dogs we use Sentinel monthly. Throughout the year it protects against flea infestation, intestinal worms and heartworms. Use Simparica to kill adult fleas and ticks, for dogs that go places where they might pick up a “hitch hiker” flea, such as dog parks, groomers, or while traveling.
For dogs that are at risk of getting ticks (hiking/camping) we recommend the additional use of Simparica (oral) or Revolution(topically) to use when exposed to tick infested areas.
For flea infestations in houses with dogs we recommend using Simparica, a pill that will kill adult fleas after they jump on and lasts 1 month. For heavy infestations in the house, you also need to treat the area with an area treatment, Knockout. Starting on the preventative at the same time is important to prevent future outbreaks.
