Local Medical IssuesSeeing worms on your pet is distressing to all pet owners. But for the one that you can see there thousands of possible adults and eggs that you cannot. One worm can make 100,000 eggs in a day, and these parasite eggs are in more places than you think. Using year-round intestinal parasite control with products such as Interceptor and Revolution is the key to keep your pet safe from worm infestation. Four pets in the Gilford/Laconia area alone were found positive for roundworms and hookworms in the month of March. The owners admitted they had lapsed in giving Interceptor for a few months in the winter, but now realize the importance of year-round protection.
Just as important in our area is the increase in tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease, in both dogs and humans. You can protect your pet from this debilitating and even deadly disease by using Frontline. At fewer than 50 cents a day it is worth knowing your pet is safe and healthy from tick-borne diseases with the added bonus of eradicating flea infestations (and the multitude of health issues they bring, as well).
Please feel free to ask us how you can insure your pet is protected from worms, ticks and fleas—we’ll be happy to help!
