Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention month!!
With the warm weather approaching pets are more susceptible to coming in contact with fleas, ticks and mosquitos. Just last year there were 6 positive heartworm cases and 12 positive lyme cases that were found at our clinic alone. There is a total of 168 confirmed cases in Ohio so far this year of lyme disease. The black legged deer tick is a carrier of lyme disease and is mostly found in Northeast states, but recently there have been a larger number found in North Central and West Coast states. It is a great idea to get dogs vaccinated for lyme disease especially if they spend a lot of time outside or go camping or hiking. The most recommended flea and tick preventative is Bravecto which is a chewable tab that gives protection for 3 months. Interceptor is a great heartworm preventative which is also available in a chewable tab that provides one month of protection. Interceptor also protects dogs from hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. Pets should be protected against these parasites year around cause even though they may not be seen as often in the winter, they are still lurking. Stop by and take advantage of the specials going on this month, your pets will thank you for it!
