Local Medical Issues

There are many medical issues that affect cats living in Northern Virginia throughout the entire year. For example, there are heartworms, fleas and ticks that thrive even throughout the winter months. That's why we recommend year-round prevention to safely guard your cat(s) from contracting many diseases that can be carried by these parasites.
