About Parasite Prevention and Treatment
Parasites are common health concerns that can cause a great deal of misery for both dogs and cats. In most cases, parasites are preventable through routine veterinary care. At Pet Method, Dr. Hunter Finn offers prevention and treatment for the following types of parasites:
- Fleas: As the most common parasites, fleas are wingless insects that live, feed, and mate on your cat or dog. If your pet is frequently scratching its skin and has irritated, red scabs, it's possible that fleas could be present.
- Ticks: Ticks are crawling insects that feed and lay eggs on your dog or cat. There are many different types of ticks, but they're most commonly found in high grass or wooded areas. Ticks can cause a great deal of skin itching and irritation.
- Heartworm: Most common in dogs, heartworm is spread through mosquito bites, leading to footlong worms that develop in the heart. While heartworm is a more complex problem to treat, it is very preventable.

How Parasite Prevention and Treatment Works
In the initial stages of a parasite, you may not even know your pet has a problem. However, an infestation of fleas or ticks can lead to serious health issues for your pet and even put your family members at risk so preventive care is essential. At Pet Method, we offer both preventive measures, as well as treatments for heartworm, fleas, and ticks. Dr. Finn can provide parasite testing to determine whether your pet has contracted a parasite. From there, the appropriate treatment will be provided. Based on your pet's needs and lifestyle, we will provide a parasite prevention program that may include oral medications, such as heartworm medicine, and any recommendations to treat your home environment.

Pet Method Reviews
The staff was very accommodating to fit us in as a semi emergency, same day, new patient. Dr Finns recommended treatment worked beautifully. His demeanor was outstanding, he examined my dog where he was most comfortable ie: in my lap and on the floor. Highly recommend.
Me and my fur baby meeko drive from Cedar Hill to come here! It really is just amazing. Meeko absolutely loves all the staff, they are all so friendly! Pet method has definitely taken the right precautions to ensure that both your fur baby and you have a stress free visit!! We plan on sticking with pet method for a long time!! Picture of how meeko felt after his visit 🤣
Wow, what a great experience! Dr. Finn and his staff were absolutely wonderful. They were super friendly, answered all my questions, had a super clean office, and treated my cat with kindness and respect. I have been to many vets around the DFW area, and this has been the best experience I have had at a vet. Definitely will bring all my pets here for future wellness checks and more. Thank you!
I’m new to McKinney and needed to find a vet. I took my older lab, Buddy, to Pet Method. Everyone was so kind and friendly. I was getting around with a broken foot and they went above and out of their way to help me with Buddy while we were there. I loved how they got on the floor with Buddy, at his level and not putting him on an exam table. It made a world of difference. I will definitely take Buddy back from now on!
Everyone here is so kind & patient. My mom is 75 and we had to take her toy poodle here for an injury he had with his nail. They were all so good with him and very detailed about everything going on. Prices were affordable and service was great! Thank you for taking care of Wheatley!
