Flea, Tick and Heartworm Prevention

It only takes one bite to infect your pet!

Fleas- An external parasite that can cause your pet to itch, scratch and chew at their skin. They commonly lead to skin irritation, skin infections, hair loss and intestinal parasites in your pet.

Ticks- An external parasite that can carry numerous diseases for both pets and people. Ticks can spread Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever to name a few. These diseases can cause lethargy, anemia, joint pain and weight loss.

Mosquitoes- An external parasite that transmits heartworm disease, this can be debilitating and if left untreated can be life threatening. Adult heartworms can live 5-7 years in a dog and attack the heart and lungs. Having your pet on a monthly heartworm, flea and tick preventative can protect them against all of these diseases. Check with your veterinarian about the best prevention products and screening tools for your animal.
