Preventive Care
Flea and Tick Control

Fleas and ticks are capable of transmitting infection and disease to pets through a bite. Many pets also suffer from severe allergic reaction to the bites of fleas and ticks. It is imperative that owners prevent these parasites by using one of the many commercially available products that protect pets from fleas and ticks. Our staff and veterinarians will help you choose the correct product based on your pet's risk factors and health status.

Our hospital carries a wide variety of flea and tick control products. Our doctors and staff will help you determine which product(s) best suit your pet's needs.

We carry topical flea/tick prevention for cats and dogs and topical tick repellent for dogs, as well as oral flea prevention for dogs. Many of our flea and tick prevention products provide additional benefits, as well, including internal parasite control and even heartworm preventative.

If you live in an area where fleas and ticks are not prevalent, but you travel with your pet, it's important to consider what diseases and parasites might be common where you're going that you don't need to worry about at home. Your pet may need vaccinations or preventives that should be started well in advance of your vacation.
