Pet Wellness Care
We offer many preventive care services to keep you pet happy and healthy.
A microchip is a tiny device that goes under a pet’s skin and serves as a form of permanent identification. The microchip stores a code which is then linked to your contact information to help reunite you with your pet if they become lost.
Oral and injectable parasite treatment (deworming) is also an important part of pet wellness. Parasites are transmitted between animals, and some can even be transmitted to pet owners. Deworming treatments against gastrointestinal parasites keep your pet healthy and parasite free. Young puppies and kittens are particularly susceptible to parasitic infections and regular deworming is recommended starting at 8 weeks of age. If you have questions about what is recommended for your dog or cat, we are here to help!
Pet Flea/Tick/Heartworm Prevention
Many products are available and price varies by the weight of your pet.
Although heartworms, fleas, and ticks can be considered an annoyance, they can also make pets sick. For instance, fleas can spread tapeworms and other dangerous bacteria, ticks can spread illnesses like Lyme disease, and heartworms can be fatal.
Our knowledgeable staff will collaborate to help control fleas, ticks, and heartworms and maintain the well-being of your pet and your family.
Fleas are tiny, leaping insects that feed on animal blood. They can transmit hazardous infections and frequently cause allergic dermatitis and “severe itching” in pets.
Ticks are external parasites that feed on animal body fluids. They can transmit infections from one animal to the next and are the primary source of disease transmission for Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
Heartworm is a parasite that can dwell in dogs’ and cats’ hearts. Mosquitoes spread the worm from infected animals to affected mammals. Several hundred worms can dwell in a dog’s heart, and parasite infestation causes severe damage and can be fatal. A negative heartworm test is required yearly to obtain heartworm prevention. We can administer a heartworm test for your dog, and help you choose the best preventative.
