Local Medical Issues
Sonoma County is a beautiful place to live, work and play. However, our mild climate year-round may contribute to increased health risks for our pets. Parasites such as mosquitoes, fleas and ticks can transmit disease, and pets need protection all year long. Heartworm disease is a life-threatening condition transmitted by mosquitoes, and is endemic in West County. Ticks and fleas can spread diseases such as Lyme disease and intestinal parasites. Some of these parasites and diseases are not only dangerous to your pet, but family members as well. These conditions are inexpensive to prevent, but very costly to treat. Ask us how to keep your pet free of these disease-spreading parasites.
