Fleas and Ticks can cause a host of problems for your pet. Pets can develop flea allergy dermatitis, tapeworms, lyme disease and in severe cases even death. We offer a variety of preventatives for fleas/ticks as well as a lyme vaccination to use in conjunction with the preventatives. Please ask us how to keep your pet safe from external parasites!
- Round worms
- This parasite can be very common. Diarrhea and distended abdomen along with spaghetti like stands in the stool can be a sign of infestation. We recommend puppies/kitties be dewormed in a series at a young age. Heartgard Plus also can deworm monthly to control round worm infestations and be used as a preventative in dogs. Yearly deworming with a broad spectrum dewormer is recommended in cats.
