Preventative Health & Maintenance Fleas and Ticks
Daily inspections of your dog for fleas and ticks during the warm seasons are important. Use a flea comb to find and remove fleas. There are several new methods of flea and tick programs. Speak to your veterinarian about these and other options.

Heartworm is a parasite which lives in the blood of a dog’s heart and blood vessels. It is spread through mosquitoes. As a mosquito bites an infected dog, it sucks out the blood containing the heartworm microfilaria. Once in the mosquito, the microfilaria develops into infective larvae. Heartworm disease can then be transmitted when it bites an unprotected dog. Preventative treatments are available to control heartworm, but dogs
MUST BE TESTED first to determine if they are already infected. Contact your veterinarian for more information.
