Do pets need parasite control in the winter?
Yes! Your pet can still get parasites even in the colder months. Once indoors or in warm areas, parasites can be just as active and they can reproduce just as much as during the summer months. Some parasites can occupy your pet, hibernate for the winter, lay eggs and then become active during the spring. Missing even just one dose of their medication can leave your pet unprotected.
What types of parasites can I get from my pet?
You can get hookworms and roundworms from your dog when they lovingly lick your face or other areas of your body. You can also get parasites from cats. An example is toxoplasma, a type of parasite you can get from petting a feline friend.
If I never let my pet outdoors/outside can they skip parasite medications?
No. Remember, parasites can still make their way into your home. Even if you live in a high rise building, parasites can access your pet through you, other people, other animals and other objects that enter your home.
