Summer is here! It’s time to make sure your pet is on flea, tick, and heartworm preventative. Although these parasites can be pesky all year round, they are especially obnoxious during the warmer weather.
Not only do fleas and ticks cause allergic rashes and nasty bites, they also cause many other health problems. For example, fleas transmit tapeworms and can cause anemia if an infestation occurs. Ticks not only carry Lyme disease, but also transmit several blood-borne parasites. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitos and an infection may be fatal in dogs and cats.
All of these parasites are easily prevented, and we will be happy to recommend the most effective and affordable prevention for your pet. To make things even more convenient, we collaborate with VetCentric pharmacy that will mail preventive medications right to your home!
