Warmer weather poses higher risk of parasites!
Ensuring that our pets receive proper parasite prevention, especially during warmer months, is of paramount importance. Warmer weather creates ideal conditions for parasites like fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes to thrive, posing a significant threat to our beloved animal companions. These parasites can transmit diseases that not only harm our pets but can also affect human health. Regular prevention measures, such as flea and tick control and heartworm prevention, not only protect our pets from discomfort and illness but also contribute to a safer and healthier environment for both animals and their owners. So, as the temperatures rise, responsible pet ownership means staying vigilant and proactive in safeguarding our furry friends against these potential dangers.
Call us today to schedule your pet’s next appointment to be tested for tick diseases and/or heartworm disease. As long as your pet tests negative, we can help you stay on track with routine prevention. With any positive test results, our doctors and team can help you navigate the next steps towards treatment options.
