Pet Dental Care:

In fact, preventive medicine and client education are some of the most important services we provide. Some of our wellness services include:

  • Routine physical examinations
  • Annual vaccinations
  • Testing for heartworms, blood parasites, and intestinal parasites

Additionally, client education is a very important part of pet wellness because a well-educated owner is better equipped to care for their pet! We encourage you to ask us if you have any questions about your pet’s needs, and we’ll be glad to help.

Parasite Prevention:

Parasites are disease-carrying vectors that can be a serious threat to your pet. These pests, which include fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, are difficult for pets to avoid if they spend time outdoors. Luckily, monthly parasite preventatives keep them safe. Common pet parasites include:

  • Heartworms
  • Ticks
  • Fleas
  • Tapeworms
  • Roundworms
  • Hookworms

Common parasite-borne diseases include:

  • Heartworm disease
  • Ehrlichiosis
  • Anaplasmosis (rare)
  • Rocky Mountain spotted fever
  • Lyme disease (rare)

Infected mosquitoes spread heartworms, while ticks spread ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Lyme disease. Since these pests are active all year round, it’s essential that you administer monthly doses of heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives.
