Local Medical Issues

In our local area, we have certain medical concerns that every pet owner should be aware of. Heartworm disease can affect cats as well as dogs, and preventions should be given throughout the entire year. Internal and external parasites can affect pets and people and should likewise be treated year-round with preventative medicine. Lyme disease has also become a big problem in our area. Even right in the city! We definitely recommend yearly testing as well as preventions.
