With the weather getting sunnier and the temperature slowly rising, it almost seems that winter is finally in the past (hopefully!). Although, this unfortunately means that preventative season is approaching quickly as the fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes begin coming out of hibernation, putting your pets and you at risk!
For this reason, it's time to start thinking about purchasing preventatives starting the end of March to the beginning of April to protect your beloved four-legged friends until November. If you have a dog at home, we highly recommend booking a heartworm test as well to ensure it is safe to be giving preventatives that contain action against heartworms. In addition, against popular beliefs, indoor cats even require preventatives since these pesky critters can enter the home on other animals, as well as on humans!
If you have any specific questions regarding preventatives, heartworm tests, and/or would like to purchase these products, please email, phone, or even contact us through Facebook!
