Meet Our Veterinarians

Our team of highly skilled veterinary professionals’ highest priority is getting to know you and your pet so they can develop and implement the most personalized and effective health care plan to keep your companion happy and healthy throughout their life.

What Can You Do to Prevent Ticks and Fleas?

Fleas and ticks are common pests that can affect our pets and spread disease. It is extremely
important to ensure prevention against these parasites in order to keep our beloved companions
safe and healthy. Veterinarians recommend year-round flea and tick protection for cats and dogs,
even if you don’t think your pet has been exposed to these parasites yet.
Medical Treatments
There are several methods of flea and tick treatment available, including topical medications,
chewable oral tablets, sprays, dips, and collars. Depending on the age, lifestyle, and health of your
pet, your veterinarian will develop a custom plan to help protect them from these pests. It is
important to follow their instructions carefully to ensure optimal protection. With the right flea and tick
prevention, such as an oral medication administered monthly, you can spare your pet from more
invasive treatments like topical creams and sprays.
In addition to medical treatments, there are also preventative steps pet owners can take. Keeping
your yard clean and free of debris will discourage fleas and ticks from congregating in the area.
Additionally, avoid letting your pet roam freely outdoors as this may increase their risk of exposure.
Lastly, inspect your pet regularly for signs of pests such as tiny black flea dirt or small ticks.

Regular Check-Ups
No matter how diligent you are about flea and tick protection, it’s always a good idea to have your
pet examined by a veterinarian on a regular basis. During the exam, they can check for signs of
parasites and provide additional treatments if needed.
If you have any questions about flea and tick prevention, please consult with your veterinarian. They
are best equipped to provide you with the information and advice you need to keep your pet safe
from these pests. With consistency and diligence, proper protection against fleas and ticks is
achievable for cats and dogs of all ages.
