Antiparasitic practices in dogs refer to various treatments and measures taken to protect dogs from parasites and to protect their health. Parasites are parasitic organisms that can cause serious health problems and even death in dogs. For this reason, dog owners should care about regular antiparasitic practices to protect the health of their pets.

Here are some examples of commonly used antiparasitic practices in dogs:

  • Medicines against lice and fleas: Various spot-on drops, shampoos, sprays or collars are used to protect from lice and fleas, which are the most common external parasites in dogs. These medications help kill lice and fleas and prevent future infestations.

  • Medicines for ticks: Ticks are dangerous parasites that can cause serious illness in dogs. Spot-on drops, oral tablets or anti-tick sprays are used to keep ticks away and protect them from the diseases they carry.

  • Medicines against internal parasites: Worms and other internal parasites can settle in the dog's digestive tract, absorbing nutrients and harming the immune system. De-worming (worm treatment) is done regularly to protect dogs from internal parasites.

  • Preventive treatments for heartworms: Heartworms are a type of parasite that can be fatal in dogs. Preventive treatments against heartworms (monthly heartworm preventatives) are regularly prescribed by the veterinarian.

Please note that the use of antiparasitic treatments may vary depending on the breed, age, size and health of the dog. Therefore, it is important for dog owners to choose the appropriate antiparasitic treatment for their dogs in consultation with a veterinarian. In addition, it is important to use the products correctly and to comply with the recommended doses in order to protect the health of the dog.
