It is necessary to differentiate between external parasites (lice, fleas, ticks, ticks, ear infections) and internal parasites (roundworms and flatworms).
External parasites attack your pet's skin, causing dermatosis which can become over-infected with pyoderma. The problem can be difficult to manage for animals with skin hypersensitivity, allergic to the parasite, but also to the superinfection germ.
External parasites are also vectors of internal parasites; for example, cats are contaminated by taenia by ingesting fleas that are an intermediate host for the parasite. Hence the need for a regular treatment against external parasites of your dog or cat depending on its lifestyle.
Internal parasites are much less visible but also harmful. They can despoil your dog's food by diverting it to their benefit: the dog then eats to feed its parasites, which can lead to vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss in the long run and can even be fatal for puppies. They can also feed on blood through the digestive mucosa and lead to anemia, sometimes severe. They can also be found in the lungs or heart. Animals living outdoors, highly exposed to parasites due to the presence of wildlife, should be treated four times a year. Let us also remember that some of these parasites, such as roundworms, are transmissible to humans and especially to children.
- Are responsible for dermatoses
- Are vectors of internal parasites
Internal parasites :
- Can lead to serious digestive pathologies
- Depending on their location, may lead to other organic disorders
- 4 treatments per year for the most exposed animals
- Are zoonoses and can be transmitted to children
