Parasites and Your Pet
Parasites live on or in our pets, and sometimes us, and can cause a range of signs. From ectoparasites, who live on the skin, to endoparasites, who live inside our pets, parasites are found inhabiting all our pet species and are a frequent reason for our pets to end up visiting their local vet! To find out more about the parasites your pet could be at risk from, and how you can protect them, follow our handy links below.
