Even healthy dogs are at risk of acquiring an infection with parasites. Common parasites include heartworm, fleas and ticks. Most of these are easy to prevent and we recommend that dogs are kept on heartworm and flea prevention all year round. We also recommend dogs be given a seasonal tick prevention (early spring through late fall). Many heartworm preventative medicines and flea protection products also protect your dogt from intestinal worms. Your veterinarian will discuss these products and their treatments with you at your dog's annual exam.
In accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC), we recommend twice a year fecal or stool checks for intestinal parasites. We carry a variety of the highest-quality parasite preventatives available. They come in monthly chewable tablets or topical solutions. All of these preventions are easily administered and go a long way in keeping your dog healthy. Please call us today so that your dog will be protected.
