We can provide you with safe, effective flea prevention and if necessary, flea treatment. See the flea article in the Pet Health Library of our site.

Ticks in our area are on the rise and so are the diseases they carry. They are a year round problem – active even when the temperature is just a few degrees above freezing.  Ticks go through two “blooms” in the spring and fall when their numbers increase.  Attaching anywhere but often prefer more hidden places (behind the elbow/ ear etc).  We have many options available to suit your pet’s needs to keep them protected.

Your pet can be infected by an internal parasite simply by ingesting contaminated soil, fleas, water or feces. Some parasites can even penetrate your pet’s skin. Common signs of parasitic infection may include vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and stunted growth. Some parasites can be transmitted to humans so deworming your pet monthly is recommended to protect you, your family and pet.
