Fleas. Ticks. Worms. There are a lot of pesky parasites that can make your pet sick.

So how do we protect our four legged friends?

Fleas and Ticks:

The vampires drink the blood from your dog or cat, which is no good for them OR you. Lyme disease and bartonella are just a few things that could leap from your pets to you if you're not careful.

Monthly flea and tick treatments, collars and shampoos are good ways to avoid these parasites before they reach your pets.

Heartworms:

Mosquitoes transmit heartworms that can cause organ damage and even death!

The best way to fight mosquitoes is monthly prevention programs and spraying your yard. Skeeters have a quarter mile flight range so spraying may not be enough.

Overall, the best way to keep your pets safe is to stay vigilant and get consistent checkups!

A healthy dog or cat is a HAPPY dog or cat!
