Flea, Tick and Heartworm Products
Regular pet wellness exams are an important aspect in preventing illness and disease and assessing your pet’s overall health. Whether your pet is only a few weeks old or is a senior, these exams give our veterinarians the best opportunity to perform a complete physical and address any health issues. We also screen for parasites and teach you about preventatives for your pet and for your peace of mind as a pet owner.
Even if your pet does not have fleas, he could be at risk of fleas that cause intense allergies, anemia, and uncomfortable itching and skin irritation if not treated with a preventative medication. We are proud to offer a variety of products to protect your pet from fleas all year long.

Ticks pose a serious danger to your pet and can also threaten the health of your home and family. There are many tick-borne illnesses in the United States, such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Year-round prevention is the key to keeping your pets safe from the harmful effects of ticks and other parasites.

Heartworms are deadly parasites that put both dogs and cats at risk, including indoor cats. These parasites can be transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito. They are known to cause damage to the lung vessels and tissues, and can even lead to death due to congestive heart failure. We recommend all of our pet patients get yearly heartworm preventatives. Heartworm preventatives also protect your pet from roundworms and hookworms.
