What does “parasite control” mean?

Generally speaking, parasite control encompasses all the measures we take to prevent pets from getting parasites. Taking anti-parasitic medications, regular checkups, and practicing precautions like avoiding dirty water are all part of parasite control and prevention.

How often should pets take parasite-control medications?

Depending on the specific formulation you choose, your pet will need to take its medication once every 3 to 4 months.

What happens if my pet misses a dose of their parasite control drug?

They will be left unprotected from parasites. Remember, parasites are around throughout the year, even during the wintertime.

I live in a high-rise apartment and my pet is hardly ever outdoors. Do they still need parasite control?

Yes. It is essential o follow the recommended dose even if your pet stays inside most of the time. Parasites can still enter your home from the outside through other means.
