If you have a cat or dog, your biggest fear may be fleas and ticks. These critters are not only annoying to you and your pet, but fleas and ticks can also cause a whole slew of problems. Fleas can transmit tapeworms and your pet may experience itching, irritation and allergies. Ticks can also cause Lyme disease, tick paralysis and much more.
Our staff can recommend the best tick and flea prevention method so you can avoid this mess altogether! When you schedule an appointment at our animal care clinic in San Francisco, we’ll schedule a regular flea, tick, and heartworm checkup and prevention appointment, so you don’t have to worry about these pesky diseases!
Heartworm can occur in your cat or dog after being bitten by a mosquito. The mosquito can transfer the infection through the bite and these types of parasites can fatally damage your pet’s heart, lungs and even blood vessels. The symptoms for heartworm can vary from pet to pet. Some pets may not show any signs of infection. Dogs are affected more than cats.
The key is prevention. Come to us for medicine to prevent roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, ear mites, fleas, and ticks. Call today for an appointment.
