Parasiticides

Parasites such as fleas and ticks pose serious health risks to patients and these parasites can transmit diseases to humans, including plague, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and bartonellosis.1 Despite the dangers, a consumer study revealed that dog and cat owners may not be as knowledgeable — or as prepared — as they think. One-third (33%) of pet owners said that they do not routinely give their pets flea/tick medication, and nearly half (48%) don't bring their pets in for routine exams to protect against these parasites.2 Veterinarian guidance is crucial to narrowing this knowledge gap. And we’re here to help with a portfolio of proven parasiticides at a value that makes protection accessible to every pet.
