Local Medical Issues
In San Diego there are year-round local medical issues that require your attention, because they can have an impact on your pet's health and well-being. Heartworm is a preventable parasite which is spread by mosquitoes and can affect both dogs and cats. Other potential problems that occur here year-round are flea and tick infestations and intestinal parasites. Finally, allergies are a year-round issue locally. It isn't uncommon to see animals with red, scaly skin, hot spots, or hair loss at any time of the year.
