Common parasites and why your dog needs protection:

Treatment & Control
Flea in animal hair

Fleas can enter your home on pets themselves, on your clothing or shoes, and/or through open windows and doors.
Fleas can host tapeworms and as a result, give them to your pet too. This means that protecting your pet from fleas is also helping reduce their risk of exposure to tapeworms.
If bitten by a flea, your pet can suffer from extreme itching and allergies. Scratching at these bites can cause hair loss and irritated skin.1

Roundworms can enter your home and pet through contaminated soil, dirt from your shoes, or infected prey in your home such as bugs and rodents.
Severe roundworm infections can cause vomiting, low weight, hair changes and a potbellied appearance.1

Prevention
Heartworm

It only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to give your pet heartworms.
Severe cases of heartworm disease can be fatal.
Even when not fatal, heartworm infections can still cause permanent damage to the lungs and heart.1
Although it can be difficult to diagnose, heartworm disease is easy to prevent.
