Client education is a very important part of pet wellness, because a well-educated owner will know best how 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.
Parasites are disease-carrying vectors that can be a serious threat to your pet if they’re not receiving monthly preventatives. Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes can be difficult for pets to avoid if they spend time outdoors, so they need to be protected. Common pet parasites include:
Common parasite-borne diseases include:
- Heartworm disease
- Anaplasmosis (rare)
- Rocky Mountain spotted fever
- Lyme disease (rare)
Heartworms are spread by infected mosquitoes, while ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Lyme disease are spread by tick bites. Since these pests are active all year round, it’s essential that you administer monthly doses of heartworm and flea and tick preventatives.
