With the advancement of flea control like Simparica, Nexgard, and Bravecto, fleas are no longer the nuisance they once were for you and your pet. The chews listed above will kill fleas and tick. Advantage Multi, Revolution, and Bravecto Feline are a liquid applied down the pet’s back which kills all fleas and they are also a heartworm preventative which requires an up to date heartworm test. . Both types of products are SAFE for your pets. DO NOT confuse these products with others you find in the pet stores. Those products are insecticides which can potentially harm your pet.
Heartworms are parasites that actually live in the dog’s heart. There is a blood test available to test for heartworm. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes, so dogs and cats both are susceptible to this parasite. There is a once a month tablet (for dogs) and a once a month topical (for cats–Revolution) that is used for prevention. There is also a 6 month and 12 month injection (for dogs) that is used for prevention. An up to date Heartworm test is required to purchase or receive any heartworm prevention for canines.
You should know that ticks carry a vast array of diseases including Lymes Disease. There is a vaccination for dogs against Lymes Disease but the best protection is prevention with the above products.
Lice are small grayish parasites that attach themselves right to the skin and tend to be on the front end of the dog.We recommend repeating the treatment every 2 weeks instead of every month. Lice are very species specific and cannot be transferred to you.
Certain parasites, such as tapeworms, are visible to the naked eye, but others (Hookworms, Roundworms, and Whipworms) must be detected under the microscope. If you will bring in a stool sample, we will be glad to examine it microscopically to see if your pet has worms. But remember that all pets must have an annual exam to be receive a prescription medication.
Small white flat worms about the size of a grain of rice in length are tapeworm segments. They come from swallowing fleas or from eating mice. There are tablets you can purchase from our veterinarian to eradicate tapeworms.(All pets must have an annual exam – by a Veterinarian, before a prescription medication is administered). There are NO products in the pet stores or grocery stores to kill tapeworms. Also, in order to keep them away, you should practice good flea control.
