Parasite Control

Also serving Newnan, Peachtree City, Fairburn, Tyrone, Chattahochee Hills, & South Fulton

Parasite control is a critical aspect of maintaining the health and well-being of your turtles and tortoises. At our veterinary clinic, we offer comprehensive parasite prevention and treatment protocols tailored to the specific needs of reptiles. We recommend regular fecal examinations to screen for internal parasites, including nematodes, cestodes, and protozoa, which can pose serious health risks to turtles and tortoises.

Based on the results of fecal testing, we develop individualized parasite control plans that may include deworming medications or other targeted treatments. Our veterinary team educates turtle and tortoise owners on proper hygiene practices and habitat management strategies to minimize the risk of parasite transmission and reinfection.

In addition to preventive measures, we provide guidance on detecting signs of parasitic infestation, such as changes in appetite, weight loss, or abnormal behavior. Prompt intervention is key to effectively managing parasitic infections and preventing complications in turtles and tortoises.

By prioritizing parasite control as part of your pet's overall health care routine, you're investing in their long-term well-being. Trust our experienced veterinarians to provide expert guidance and support in safeguarding your turtles and tortoises against parasitic threats, ensuring they enjoy a healthy and fulfilling life. Together, we'll work towards creating a safe and parasite-free environment where your shelled companions can thrive.
