No matter how hard we try to avoid mosquitoes, they frequently find a way to our skin. For cats, one bite can be perilous. Heartworm transfers easily among animals through a single mosquito bite, posing a risk to indoor as well as outdoor cats. These thread-like worms take up residence in the heart and lungs, leading to lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. Referred to as a silent killer, symptoms show late and treatments are rarely effective.Read more to understand and ward off heartworm
While fleas and ticks get a lot of attention, they’re not the only risks your pet faces day-to-day. If you’ve had a young pup, you may have encountered the Demodex mite - or more specifically demodectic mange, a skin disease caused by the mites that commonly affects the face and legs of young dogs.
Or perhaps you’ve encountered the Sarcoptes mite? Most commonly spread through exposure to other dogs (from parks and playgrounds to households), the highly contagious mites move quickly from animal to animal, causing intense itching, redness, hair loss and crusts.
Then there are ear mites, which can affect both dogs and cats. Luckily for you and your pet, Bravecto Chew for Dogs can treat and control against these lesser known parasites. Bravecto Plus treats cats for ear mites.
