Spring Is Here – Protect Your Pets!

Fleas-Ticks-3It’s that time of year again! The weather is getting warmer and mosquitoes and fleas are on the rise. Year around prevention is very important. We want to take the time to again emphasize the importance of protecting your pets. Here are some facts:

Heartworm Preventative

In North Carolina, year-round heartworm prevention is essential. Heartworms are spread by mosquitoes and so even indoor only cats can be infected. We see mosquitoes in our areas year-round so prevention must be maintained year-round to keep your dog or cat from contracting heartworm disease. There are many good options for heartworm preventative available, talk to your Veterinarian to determine which is best for you and your dog or cat.

Flea and Tick Preventative

Prevention is the best way to keep your house, your pets and you flea free. In some areas, it is not essential to maintain year-round flea and tick prevention but, as spring and warm weather come, so do the fleas and ticks. It is now time to restart your tick prevention if you stopped for the winter. We are starting to see fleas come back with the weather change, so call today at 919-489-2391 to discuss what preventative option would be best for you and your pet or stop in and pick up parasite prevention for your pet today – we are offering a variety of rebates on select products.
