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, heartworm disease can affect both cats and dogs. Since heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, heartworm is a serious cause for concern. And 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. And 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. Please ask our experienced and knowledgeable staff about the products we recommend to combat these infections and diseases before they become a problem.
