Parasite Prevention

Prevent cat or dog parasites today and avoid unnecessary suffering and worry for you and your pet by following our tips on prevention.

Common intestinal parasites in dogs and cats include hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, tapeworms, and coccidia. Additionally, some worms are zoonotic parasites which means they can also infect humans. Our veterinarians recommend routine testing and monthly preventives for intestinal parasites.

 

Obesity Prevention

More pets are suffering from obesity. The latest data from the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) reveals over half the nation's dogs and cats are overweight or obese. With increasing weights come increased weight-related disorders, especially osteoarthritis and type 2 diabetes..

 

Dental Health

For the same reason you care for your own. The most common disease in pet animals is periodontal disease. They are also subject to broken teeth, orthodontic problems and even cavities. All of these problems will affect your animal’s mouth, obviously, but can also lead to the infections that introduce bacteria into other parts of the body. In other words, bad teeth can lead to a sick animal. Evidence continues to mount that chronic infection or inflammation in any part of the body can have serious negative impact on systemic health.
