Local Medical Issues
There are numerous medical issues we are faced with year-round in the state of Florida; some of the most serious and reccurring problems are heartworm and allergies.
Heartworm is a major health problem affecting both cats and dogs, and is transmitted by mosquitoes. This issue affects our indoor pets too, which makes for a serious concern. Due to our warm tropical climate, temperatures never get cold enough to kill the mosquito eggs, causing a year-round risk. This goes the same for flea and tick infestations and intestinal parasites.
Contrary to what you would expect, allergies are a year-round problem too. So many of our pets suffer from allergies of the skin and ears, leading to excessive scratching and redness, making it very uncomfortable for them.
Our staff at VCA Friendship Pompano understands these issues, and we are committed to providing the best possible care and prescribing preventative treatments to maintain a healthy, happy pet!
