Internal and external parasites can be common and easily controlled or prevented. Some of these parasites can lead to health issues in pets and can also cause health concerns for pet owners and their families.
External parasites include fleas and ticks, which can cause skin irritation, can also spread more severe diseases to pets and their owners.
