When it comes to caring for our dogs, it’s our job to keep our fur buddies healthy and safe. Knowing what may be detrimental to their health is an important part of being a responsible owner.
Three major health concerns for dog owners include heartworm, gastrointestinal worms, and ticks & fleas–a single bite from any of these parasites pose as a potentially deadly disease for our pets. But what exactly are these pests that cause harm to our beloved dogs?
HEARTWORMS, GASTROINTESTINAL WORMS, TICKS, AND FLEAS: Silent Threats
Heartworm is a parasitic disease spread by mosquitos and transmitted when they feed off our dogs, and can be debilitating and potentially fatal. Fleas are frustrating parasites that cause allergic dermatitis, not only to pets but to humans as well, and may lead to tapeworms if carried by the pest. Ticks on the other hand are quite small, you only notice them once they are swollen with blood. Though it can be carefully removed, infections may occur and can cause kidney-related problems. Gastrointestinal worms come from eggs passed in the feces of infected animals, and dogs are at high risk due to their tendency to eat soil and feces. Humans are also at risk as these parasites can also be transmitted to people with dire consequences to their health.
As dog owners, it’s best to ensure preventive measures to avoid illness rather than having it treated at the last minute. We don’t want to risk our dog’s health and cause them anxiety by being apart from us as they get wait to be cured. However, with so many options in the market, it’s quite confusing to choose which one we should give them. Apart from having the difficulty of being presented with various options, it can also be expensive to purchase medication for each health concern. Furthermore, having our dogs take different supplements for each health concern may pose as a danger if an owner proceeds without the proper guidance as some ingredients may not be safe to be taken at the same time.
SIMPARICA TRIO: Doggie Defense Made Fun (and Chewable!)
Aiding with these concerns is Simparica Trio, the first monthly chewable supplement that provides complete protection for your dog with three proven ingredients designed for defense. A highly efficient medication, this yummy and chewable tablet is only needed to be taken once a month to defend your fur babies from heartworm, gastrointestinal worms, and ticks & fleas.
Distributed by Zoetis, a global animal health company that has made it their goal to improve your dog’s quality of life, Simparica Trio is a brand that understands that canine preventative health is a must for every dog owner. This preventative supplement not only ensures that your dog is taken cared of but has taken immense steps in helping fur parents further show their love and care for their babies. This easy-to-use tablet is an FDA-approved prescription product that is deemed safe for puppies as young as 8 weeks old (weighing at least 2.8 lbs) and guarantees 100% satisfaction that will keep your worries at bay.
This can be given as is because it’s palatable; however, it can also be mixed with your dog’s food if ever they’re not in a cooperative mood (it happens). I tried giving Simparica Trio as is to my fur babies, Tuffy and Beanie, but they had different preferences. Beanie was quick to munch it from my hand while Tuffy had second thoughts, so I wrapped it in her food! Better safe than sick, of course. Both of them weigh between 10-20 kgs, so one pack was enough for this month. I’ll have to stock more to keep them parasite-free!
I may sound like I’m over-reacting but being a dog owner is not something to be taken lightly. It’s life changing and an incredibly rewarding experience… as long as you’re ready for the responsibility it comes with. This holds true when taking care of other animals, too.
Giving your dogs lots of love, companionship, regular exercise, and a healthy diet are parts of an owner’s responsibility. Add in regular check-ins at the vet and a routine medical care, and you’re sure to have a fulfilling and happy life with your fur buddies.
Don’t forget to visit your veterinarian and ask for guidance on the proper use of Simparica Trio as you continue your dog’s journey to a healthier, happier life. And please, don’t self-medicate or DIY things for your fur babies!
Simparica Trio comes in the following variants: 2.5 to 5 kg dogs, 5 to 10 kg dogs, 10 to 20 kg dogs, and 20 to 40 kg dogs, as prescribed by veterinarians.
