DEWORMING / FECAL CHECKS
Dangerous parasites are always present in the environment. We recommend regular fecal checks and deworming as the best way to prevent parasitic disease and the transmission of intestinal parasites to your pet and your family members.
REGULAR BLOOD TESTING
A chemistry panel and complete blood count can identify the presence of underlying diseases processes. They can also create a baseline if your pet becomes ill between regular exams.
Heartworm disease is a serious, life threatening disease affecting cats and dogs. Mosquitoes spread the disease by injecting the parasite into your pet at the time of the bite. Clinical symptoms of heart worm disease develop very slowly Lack of energy and exercise intolerance are early symptoms, as are coughing and difficulty breathing. Because heart worm disease is increasing in frequency, and is a serious and deadly disease, we recommend that your dog be tested annually and maintained on monthly heart worm prevention. We have a variety of heart worm preventative available to fit your pet’s needs.
