At Hancock Park Veterinary Clinic, our veterinarians in Los Angeles work tirelessly with pet owners and their pets to promote the importance of pet parasite prevention for keeping all our animal companions safe.
Parasites, including fleas, ticks, and mosquitos, can be found all over the country, including Los Angeles. These critters are known to carry diseases--including Lyme disease and heart worms--which can make your animal very sick. If left untreated, many of diseases can even be life-threatening. Practicing good pet parasite prevention is also good for the whole family, since some flea and tick borne illnesses can be transmitted from animals to humans!
