Preventative Care

We cannot begin to express how important it is to keep your pets on a heartworm preventative. Heartworms are carried by mosquitoes, which we have a LOT of here! One bite from an infected mosquito can infect your dog or cat with heartworms. 1 in 3 pets that are diagnosed with heartworm disease are strictly indoor pets. There is no treatment for cats, and treatment in dogs can be dangerous, depending on the length of time your dog has been infected! Keeping your pets on a flea and tick preventative is extremely important as well. Flea infestations are not only a nuisance, but also make our pets miserable. Severe infestations can cause anemia in both dogs and cats. The simple solution for preventing heartworm disease, fleas, and ticks is keeping your pets on preventative year round.

We carry a variety of veterinary approved preventative products here in our hospital. Below is a list of the products that we carry in house. However, if you or your pet prefer a different product, we do offer all of the veterinary approved preventative products on our online pharmacy at great rates with the ease of being shipped to your house! This option is offered exclusively to our clients. Please click on the Online Store tab to browse the pharmacy.
