Local Medical Issues
Having a pet is a wonderful experience. However, there are some zoonotic diseases that you should be aware of. These are diseases that can be transferred from animals to humans, including intestinal parasites, leptospirosis, rabies and tick-borne diseases. There are things we can and should do to protect our pets and our human family members from these diseases. Pets can be protected from many diseases by vaccinations and year-round prevention.
Intestinal parasites can be transmitted through contaminated soil and fecal matter. To protect your pets, they should be on year-round parasite protection such as Interceptor and Revolution. You should have your pet's stool sample checked at least twice a year to make sure they aren't infected and shedding parasites. Humans should wash their hands after gardening or playing outside.
Heartworm disease effects both dogs AND CATS. It is a deadly disease that is transmitted by a mosquito and can be prevented. Both dogs and cats need to be on year-round preventatives such as Interceptor and Revolution.
