Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health which require your attention over the entire year. One example are heartworms. These are transmitted by mosquitoes and can affect both cats and dogs. Since winter temperatures do not get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, it is a year round risk. Giving the recommended monthly heartworm medication, called Interceptor Plus, prevents not only heartworms but other intestinal parasites which are in our environment year round. We also have fleas and ticks in our area, so we recommend monthly applications of Simpleguard. Ticks can transmit Lyme disease as well as other tick-borne ailments. We follow the American Heartworm Society guidelines which mandate yearly heartworm testing. This blood test also checks for the 3 tick borne diseases: lyme disease, ehrlichia and anaplasmosis. Prevention is essential to keeping your pet happy and healthy!
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) represents practitioners in the veterinary community who are passionate about the care of cats and supports its members in improving the health and welfare of feline patients. With a reputation as a leader in the field of feline medicine, the AAFP helps veterinary practices establish a feline-friendly environment that reduces stress for cats during veterinary visits.
