Ticks can hop from other dogs in the vicinity onto your pet dog and bring with them a plethora of health issues, including the deadly Lyme disease. In the case your pet starts suffering from joint pains, weakness in the body, or loss of appetite, it may be the right moment to look into our preventative measures. Our veterinarians will prescribe the right medicines, ointments or remedies, so consult us today and let your pet live a healthier life.
For ticks, we offer various oral and topical medications, including Advantix and Nexgard. In the case of Lyme disease, there may be indicators like stiffness in the joints, accompanied by swelling and fever. Consult with us today and keep your pets tick-free and happy.
Heartworms are parasites transferred by mosquitoes, and like all parasites, they attach themselves to a living host, most likely you pet animals, to cause a range of debilitating conditions. An extreme scenario may include damage to the heart and lungs if early symptoms are not detected in time. A simple blood test done soon may help to identify and prevent the onset of heartworm disease.
