Flea & Tick Prevention

Dealing with fleas and ticks is something every pet owner dreads. We stay up to date on the latest in preventions to help keep your pet protected. Bravecto is currently our favorite flea and tick prevention. Just like any prescription medication a yearly exam is required. We think you will love it as much as we do because: It works! It is convenient! One chew every 3 months for dogs. One topical dose every three months for cats. Dogs love the flavor and cats love that they don't have to take a pill to be protected!

Heartworm Prevention

What are heartworms?
Heartworms are a blood parasite that our pets get through mosquito bites. When the heartworms mature they live in the heart and surrounding vessels causing damage to both the heart and lungs. Due to our mild climate and the life cycle of the heartworms, heartworm prevention must be given all 12 months of each year.

Recommendations for Dogs
If a dog contracts heartworms they it can be treated with an oral medication followed by a series of deep muscle injections. The treatment last several months and during that time your dog must be kept very quiet in a crate and leash walked only. This time of reduced activity is very important to reduce the risk of the dying heartworms breaking apart and causing blocked blood flow to major organs.

To keep your dog safe we recommend you give Sentinel Flavor Tabs as your year-round heartworm prevention. One flavored tablet every 30 days keeps your dog safe all year! Just like any prescription medication a yearly exam is required. We also require a yearly heartworm test for our canine patients to ensure they are staying protected!

By purchasing your prevention or prescription medication directly from us you can be assured that if you have any questions, concerns, or problems we will have your back!

Recommendations for Cats
Heartworm disease in cats is very different than in dogs. If your cat tests positive for heartworm disease there are currently no treatments available. Your cat's doctor will discuss what testing and monitoring is needed and will help you develop a plan. Keeping your cat on monthly heartworm prevention is key to keeping heartworms away.

Revolution is our favorite heartworm prevention for cats. It is a topical medication that you apply at the base of your cat's neck every 30 days. We require a yearly exam to fill this prescription medication.
