While poop is certainly not the most pleasant part of pet ownership, it comes with the territory. Whether it’s scooping the litter box, cleaning up your backyard, or toting home the “bag of shame” on your daily walk, you are going to get to know your pet’s poop.
Most pet owners aren’t so thrilled with this aspect of caring for their pets, and many probably wonder why we are so focused on checking a pet’s feces periodically. Your friends at Mountainview Veterinary Hospital really do need to look at your pet’s poop in order to be sure he or she is healthy. Intestinal parasites in pets are a common occurrence, and one we want to be certain that we have under control.
