Flea & Tick Prevention
Their recommendations are based on:
Year-round transfer of parasites can occur even though the pet does not go outside. Ticks are seen when there is still snow on the ground, indoor mosquitoes & insects are present, and parasites brought indoors by foot traffic are all instances where year-round transfer of parasites can occur.
It is difficult, if not impossible, with changing weather patterns and temperatures to determine when the parasite and disease are present in your pet’s environment so monthly year round prevention is recommended. Studies have shown that effective parasite protection is much higher when the monthly routine is followed year-round.
Our recommendation for Dogs:
Heartgard Plus® used monthly, year-round to prevent heartworms as well as hookworms, & roundworms. This product has a full guarantee, very good acceptance, and a broad spectrum of activity. It also has a 15-year plus history of safe administration and effectiveness.
Used concurrently with….
Frontline Plus® is used monthly, year-round. This product has the best protection against the ticks that carry disease and is highly waterproof. An excellent safety record, a satisfaction back guarantee, and an easy, mess-free application process have kept this product our favorite for the past 12 years. It is a much more effective and safer than products (like Advantix) that contain Permethrin (which is deadly to cats).
Our recommendation for Cats:
Revolution® used monthly year- round, has a very broad spectrum of activity and prevents fleas, ticks,ear mites, heartworms, and internal parasites.
It is very safe in a species that is known for its sensitivity to medications. Its effectiveness, ease of use, and company guarantee makes this our preferred choice for both outdoor & indoor cats. 28% of cats that had heartworm infections in a recent study were indoor only cats.
The heartworm test for cats is available and now every time we test your cat for feline leukemia & FIV virus, we will check them for this dangerous parasite.
