What is a parasite?
Parasites are organisms that can only reproduce at the expense of a plant or animal. In the case of a cat, they live on the skin (external parasite) or in the intestines (internal parasite).
Common parasites in cats are:
- Internal parasite: giardia, roundworm and tapeworm
- External parasite: fleas, ticks and mites
Preventing or control of parasites
Some parasites can be easily prevented, others can only be controlled curatively if your cat is found to be infected. Each parasite requires its own treatment. All employees of De Dierenkliniek have all the knowledge to inform and help you with the right (preventive) care.
