March is National Tick Awareness Month!
Spring is just around the corner which means ticks are too! Parasite Prevention is the best way to keep your pet happy and healthy by reducing the risk of tick-borne diseases and tapeworm infections.
Time to Start your Tick Prevention!
There are two SAFE and EASY ways that we can prescribe Parasite Prevention for your pet while maintaining physical distancing:
1. If we have seen your pet within the last year, please call or email us to schedule a curbside appointment to pick up your pet’s Parasite Prevention.
2. If we have not seen your pet within the last year, please call or email us to schedule your pet’s annual wellness exam and blood screening test. Our healthcare team will be happy to discuss our current parasite prevention and COVID-19 protocols with you.
Prevention is Key!
Preventing your pet from getting parasites and tick-borne diseases will require multiple preventative measures. Checking your pet after being outdoors or avoiding high risk areas, is important but should be combined with preventative parasite medications. A monthly tablet or topical application will help prevent your pet from getting ticks, fleas, heartworm and intestinal worms.
For more information or guidance on our parasite control program, please call our hospital at (705) 725-8577 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
