FLEA AND TICK Flea fact: did you know that one female flea can produce 2,000 eggs in her lifetime? Tick truth: once attached to your pet, a tick can feed for up to 5 days. A single bite can transmit Lyme disease, a threat in all 50 states. Pets need flea and tick prevention year-round!
We are super excited to announce the launch of the newest line of canine prevention. Simparica Trio. This product aids in the prevention of heart worm disease, intestinal parasites, Fleas, AND ticks. This is the first all in one monthly pill that helps to control ticks too. Call and ask us about it today.
ALLERGIES Have an itchy pet? For some dogs and cats, spring can mean the onset of seasonal allergies. As in humans, common triggers include pollen and mold spores. Since scratching can lead to secondary skin infections, please make an appointment with us before symptoms worsen.
SENIOR WELLNESS With the right care, senior pets are living longer than ever! Make your furry friend’s golden years as healthy and happy as possible. When age-related diseases are caught early enough, we can treat them more effectively. We recommend yearly blood work over the age of seven.
UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS Similar to a common cold in humans, an upper respiratory infection (URI) in your pet can cause sneezing, coughing, runny nose, and watery eyes. Please reach out to us for a proper diagnosis if you notice any of these symptoms in your pet.
POISON PREVENTION With spring around the corner, pets have many ways to find trouble. Please be aware of potential dangers for your pets including fertilizers, insecticides, cleaning products, and popular springtime plants like tulips and lilies. Common signs of poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or seizures. Please call us with any concerns.
SAFE SPRING CLEANING Many cleaning products contain chemicals that can be harmful to your pets. Skip the bleach and harsh cleaners and look for pet-safe options that make spring cleaning less risky for your furry friends. March is Pet Poison Prevention Month, the perfect time to check for harmful poisons that might be lurking around your home.
