In this webisode, Drs. Adam Christman and Patricia Leff of Brick Town Veterinary Hospital, delve into a popular summertime topic for pet owners — Parasite Prevention.
Dr. Christman begins with a discussion of ectoparasites (parasites that live on a pet's skin, such as fleas and ticks) and endoparasites (parasites that live inside a pet, such as roundworms, tapeworms, and whipworms). He also explains whether you should use a topical versus an oral preventative.
Finally, Dr. Christman gives a detailed overview of the most popular products on the market for the prevention of fleas, ticks, heartworms and other parasites, including:
- Frontline Plus
- K9 Advantix
- Scalibor (tick collars)
