Creatures that live upon others, often causing discomfort or disease. Parasites that take up residence on the cat's skin include fleas, ticks, and lice, which can be eliminated by the use of powders, certain compresses, or pesticide collars.

cause many different kinds of problems in animals. An examination of your pet's stool can identify the problem so it may be quickly eradicated. Currently the Front Range of Colorado is about the only place in the U.S. where heartworms are not evident. No preventative medication for heartworms is necessary unless your pet is traveling outside the area.

Organisms that survive by living on or in the body of a host organism. Parasites generally do not kill their hosts, but they often contribute to overall ill health. Iguanas can be host to many internal (i.e. living in the body) parasites such as tapeworms, hookworms and protozoans, as well as external (i.e. living on the body) parasites such as ticks and mites. For more information on iguana parasites and how to treat them, see the Parasites page.
