Cat & Dog Flea and Tick Prevention in Hudson, NC

To keep your best friend parasite-free, we recommend


as well as year-round parasite prevention.

Pet parasites may be tiny, but they can be a major nuisance for our pets and us! The pests that affect our dogs and cats the most are intestinal parasites like roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms, and external parasites like fleas, ticks, and heartworms. 

Fleas are prevalent in shady, moist, low-level areas, but they can also be transmitted from pet to pet (or from human to pet). Ticks also thrive in shady, moist, low-level areas, but they aren’t typically transmitted from host to host. Heartworms are transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Common Health Issues Caused by Parasites

If left untreated, internal and external parasites can cause a number of health problems for your canine or feline family member, including:

  • Stunted growth (caused by roundworms)
  • Anemia (caused by hookworms)
  • Intestinal inflammation (caused by whipworms and giardia)
  • Intestinal blockage (caused by tapeworms)
  • Lyme disease (caused by ticks)
  • Hair loss, dry skin, or lesions (caused by fleas)
  • Severe lung disease or heart failure (caused by heartworms)

If the condition can be treated, sometimes treatment is very expensive and time-consuming. Here at Hudson Animal Hospital, we want to protect your pet from parasites throughout the year so you won’t have to deal with costly treatment later.
