Local Medical IssuesOur hospital practices preventive care and it is important to focus on this throughout the year. For example, heartworm can affect both dogs and cats and can be fatal. Keeping your pet on heartworm preventative year-round is important because mosquitoes can thrive even in cold weather.
We recommend keeping your cat or dog on flea and tick control year-round. Ticks can carry diseases, and flea infestations can be difficult to eliminate. Even if you keep your pet indoors, fleas and ticks can be carried inside the home on your clothing or by other pets. VCA Bolingbrook Animal Hospital carries flea and tick control that is effective, safe, and easy to apply.
We also recommend routine diagnostic testing each year. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors who will customize what your pet should have based on your pet's age.
