Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health that require your attention over the entire year. One example, heartworms, which can affect both cats and dogs, are transmitted by mosquitoes. Since winter temperatures do not get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, it is a year round risk. Giving the recommended monthly heartworm medication, called Quadriguard, not only prevents heartworms, but also works to prevent other internal parasites which are in our environment year round as well.
We also have fleas and ticks in our area, so we recommend monthly applications of Simpleguard. Ticks can transmit Lyme disease as well as other tick-borne ailments. We recommend, as part of your pet's annual wellness plan, to have a blood test for heartworm, Lyme disease, and two other tick-borne diseases. Prevention is essential to keeping your pet happy and healthy!
We are here to answer all of your questions regarding these and any other issues, problems or concerns you have about your pet's health. Please call us today!
