A simple way you can help keep your pet healthy is by protecting him or her against internal and external parasites, heartworm, fleas, and ticks. These parasites are much more than just pests - they can cause life-threatening health conditions. Ticks are an expanding threat and they can carry more than just Lymes Disease - there are other tick borne diseases that are just as serious for either your pet or you or BOTH. Did you know that certain internal parasites (especially roundworm) from your pet can get into a person and cause major health issues including blindness! Contaminated yards and areas that are used for defecation by your pet become contaminated with feces parasite eggs -these can find their way onto/into people- especially susceptible people are the young, the old and the immune compromised. So when our doctors or staff recommend the best preventive regimen for your pet, based on lifestyle and risk factors we are doing so with the health of you and your pet in mind. We also provide expert advice on keeping your whole household safe from parasite infections. Please drop by or call to set up an appointment with us to discuss parasite prevention or call us to refill your pet’s medication. Protect your pet and your family today!
