Ticks attach to your pet, then feed on his or her blood and transmit disease.

Tiny but highly contagious ear mites live in the ear canals of mammals. 

Heartworm

This thread-like parasitic roundworm can cause damage to vital organs. 

Hookworm

These roundworms live in the digestive system and can cause coughing and serious symptoms.

The parasitic roundworm lives in the small intestine and feeds on partially digested food. 

Tapeworm

These long, flat, segmented worms attach to your pet's intestinal lining and cause blockages.
