Local Medical Issues

Because of where we live and play there are many medical issues that can impact your pet's health. Heartworm diease, which can affect both cats and dogs is becoming an increasing threat in western Washington. Heartworms are exactly that, worms that multiply in your pet's heart. They are transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region. Since the winter temperatures do not get cold enough here to kill mosquito eggs, this poses a year-round risk for our pets. The same is said for fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites. This is why we recommend your pet receive monthy parasite prevention all year round. Contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are also a year-round issue in this climate and many pets suffer from them. The signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, "scaly" skin and runny eyes. If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms they should be evaluated by a veterinarian to determine the best course of treatment.
