Ever wonder if the recent climate changes can affect your dog or cat? Well, it turns out that it can. Flea and tick populations have been increasing in size, they have been feeding more often, and are a year-round pest. Mosquitoes that spread heartworm disease are now infecting dogs all over the United States (vs. being limited to certain locations in the past). Because of higher temperatures, kitten season has also become a year-round event. What does this mean for you? It means that flea, tick, and heartworm prevention are a year-round necessity, and spaying/neutering your cats is a must. If you have not yet heard, we are now carrying a chewable flea and tick prevention for dogs called Simparica. It starts killing fleas and ticks very quickly and is very economical. Next time you stop in, ask us about it!
