Pet Flea, Tick, and Heartworm preventives
Town & Country Veterinary Hospital has fleas, ticks, and heartworm; therefore, it’s essential to safeguard your pet. Although heartworm, fleas, and ticks can pose a significant threat to your pet’s health, Town & Country Veterinary Hospital can assist you in preventing problems and illnesses brought on by these parasites.
Preventing parasites and the diseases they transmit is possible with the proper treatment and care. In addition to irritating your pet, fleas and ticks can carry diseases and hurt their health. Heartworm is a harmful parasite that infects the heart muscle and can be fatal in dogs and cats.
Ticks are external parasites that survive by sucking blood from other animals. They are the primary means by which illnesses like Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever move from one animal to another.
Dogs and cats can harbor the parasite heartworm in their hearts. The worm is spread from one infected animal to another by mosquitoes. A dog’s heart may contain several hundred worms, and parasite infection causes serious harm and may even be deadly.
Prevention is vital when it comes to your pet’s health.
