Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health and require your attention throughout the year. For example, heartworm can affect both cats and dogs. It is transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, so it can be a serious cause for concern. Our winter temperatures do not get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, so it's a year-round risk.
The same is true for flea and tick infestations and intestinal parasites, each of which poses a problem in any season. And finally, contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, and "scaly" skin.
