Parasite Prevention

A simple way you can help keep your pet healthy is by protecting him or her against parasites. Unfortunately, heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other internal and external parasites are much more than just pests; they can cause serious health problems for you, your pet, and potentially, for your family. Most dogs in our area need to be on monthly heartworm as well as flea/tick preventative. Your veterinarian will ask you a few questions and then recommend the best preventive regimen for your pet, based on your lifestyle and risk factors. We can also provide expert advice on keeping your whole household safe from parasitic infection. Set up an appointment with us to discuss parasite prevention, or call us to refill your pet’s medication.
