It can lead to foul breath, inflamed gums, tartar build up, poor appetite, drooling and can result in heart and kidney disease . The key is prevention of plaque build up which is why dental cleaning is a vital part of keeping a happy healthy pet!

Flea infestations can be extremely difficult to control due to their life cycle and rapid reproduction. A flea can lay up to 40 eggs and can bite an animal up to 400 times per day. Their eggs can roll off a dog or cats coat and leave eggs in carpeted areas, around the house, car and yard. They are most prevalent in wooded areas, shrubbery and from urban wildlife.
Ticks, although less common than fleas, can pose multiple health issues. Ticks attach themselves to the skin of the animal in order to gain nutrients from the blood. Once attached, they can bury themselves deeper into the epidermis making them difficult to remove. The commonly-known serious disease associated with ticks is Lyme disease but they can also be carriers for Ehrlichiosis (bacterial infection) and Tularemia ( infectious bacterial disease).
By keeping your pet on a flea/tick prevention plan, these scenarios can be avoided. We can help you pick the right medication for your lifestyle to keep your pet bug-free.
