Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health and that require your attention over the entire year. For example; heart worm disease, can affect both cats and dogs because it's transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region. It's a serious cause for concern. Because the winter temperatures here do not get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, it's a year-round risk. The same is true for flea and tick infestation and intestinal parasites'each of which poses a problem in any season. Finally, contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, and "scaly" skin.
