Parasite Prevention and Control

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in dogs. The disease is spread from dog to dog by any one of over 70 species of mosquitoes. Much of the damage occurs before there are any outward signs of the disease. Therefore, prevention is the key element in protecting your dog.

Roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms are internal parasites that not only compromise your dog’s health, but can also compromise your family’s health.

Preventing heartworm disease and controlling hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm infections are essential in maintaining your pet’s good health. Our office prescribes a variety of heartworm preventatives. Our staff can help you decide which is best for your pet. Each preventative comes in 6 month and 12 month supplies according to weight. We recommend giving heartworm prevention to your dog once a month all year long. These medications can also be purchased through our online store for the convenience of home delivery.
