Those who follow this blog know I've been writing a BUNCH of articles lately covering the variety of puppy parasites that can make your pet sick. These include bugs you can see on the outside of the pet like fleas and ticks, and those on the inside of the puppy like roundworms and heartworms. There are even some parasites that remain hidden but cause lots of visible damage, such as mange.
Luckily, there are medications that can usually quickly treat and get rid of these parasites and some medications that actually prevent them from causing problems in the first place. I'll be adding more articles along the way. But so far I've created a roundup of puppy parasite articles where you can learn more about what to look for, how to avoid, and what to do if your puppy contracts one of these 12 puppy parasites.
