Now that the weather is getting warmer, you’ll probably be spending more time outside with your pets. This means they are more likely to become exposed to insects and parasites.
Each year, many pets are diagnosed with diseases carried by insects and parasites. The cost of treatment can be expensive, and some diseases can lead to serious illnesses. Many of these parasites can even be transmitted to you and your family if your pet becomes infected.
Prevention is the best approach in protecting your pet, and family, against heartworms, parasites, and flea/tick infestations. Here’s what we recommend:
- Heartworm Preventatives: They protect against the harmful disease spread by mosquitoes. They also help treat and prevent intestinal parasites like roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms.
- Flea/Tick Preventatives: Having your pet on monthly flea and tick preventatives protects them against fleas that transmit tapeworms and ticks that spread tick-borne diseases.
