Parasites that can harm your puppy include external parasites that live on your puppy (fleas, ticks), as well as internal parasites, those that live inside your pet (heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, whipworms). We can help you protect your puppy from both types of parasites with monthly preventatives with products such as Simparica TRIO. Our veterinarians will recommend specific products to keep your pet safe from parasites and the diseases they may carry.
