There is no preventative since antibiotics and antiparasitics are usually very hard on their little systems, often times it's not even recommended to treat for worms and parasites unless the counts are high.

Keep a clean enclosure, don't let stool sit in the cage any longer than it has to, give frequent baths, and wash your hands before handling your beardie and he should be fine.
