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
Dr. Finn and his team are the best! I had taken my dog to four other vets before all of which prescribed pain medication and said it wasn’t emergent when she was having trouble walking and unable to eat. I took my dog to Pet Method where Dr. Finn did blood work, X-rays and an ultrasound she was found to be in CKD and needed to be emergently admitted for aggressive treatment. My baby would have died if it wasn’t for him & his team
Dr. Finn and staff are amazing! Kaitlyn is great and Sara is awesome. Love Dr. Finn's fear free approach and appreciate the insight he provides. Highly recommend bringing your pet(s) in!
Dr.Finn was great with my dogs. One has severe anxiety and Dr.Finn was extremely patient and caring. 10/10 reccomend Pet Method.
My dogs absolutely love Pet Method. We used to take them to another pet hospital and they would always end up being terrified after the exam. For example, our older dog, Henry, would cower under the chairs after getting his shot or his nails clipped. At Pet Method, they took their time to make sure he was comfy and gave him lots of treats while also clipping his nails in a quick and neat manner. He ended up snoring afterwards in his exam room! We live in Garland and are gladly driving up to this place because we know that our pets would get the best treatment from Dr. Finn and his staffs. 10/10 would definitely recommend them to anyone who's looking for a vet who truly cares about their pets!
