It's hard to imagine a better, truer friend than our pets. We count on them for friendship and unconditional love, while they count on us for protection from dangerous parasites and the diseases they carry. (And walkies, pats, toys, play, and cookies, of course!)

Fleas Ticks

Fleas can cause skin conditions, extreme discomfort, anemia, and nasty diseases, and heartworms can be lethal. Intestinal parasites like roundworms and hookworms can harm your pets and even infect human family membersTicks carry and spread an array of diseases and pose a very real threat to both pets and humans

But don't fret! All you need to protect your best pet buddy is a veterinarian-recommended parasite prevention strategy and product(s). The parasite preventatives we recommend are safe for your pet, easy for you to administer, and - best of all - highly effective.

April is National Heartworm Awareness Month. Heartworm disease is a particularly heartbreaking story in veterinary medicine, as it does so much damage to a pet's body, yet is so easily prevented with the proper products.

Heartworm larvae are carried by infected mosquitoes and injected into the pet's bloodstream with the saliva from the mosquito’s bite. Those larvae then grow to full-sized heartworms (up to 14” long!), invading and severely damaging the heart, lungs, and pulmonary arteries.

While heartworm disease is different for dogs and cats, it is life-threatening in both species

Indoor pets can get passed by when it comes to parasite prevention. In an ideal world, parasites would stick to the great outdoors, but the reality is, they go where the food is, indoors or out. They'll sneak their way inside on clothing, shoes, etc. It only takes a moment for a heartworm-infected mosquito to fly through an open door.

Parasite prevention isn't inexpensive, but it's typically far less expensive than the process of diagnosing and treating the complicated medical conditions (as well as agonizing situations like household flea infestations!) they can cause. And the peace of mind you'll experience from a great parasite prevention plan is priceless!

As a considerable perk, protecting your pet from parasites also helps to protect your human family members. Because so many parasites and the diseases they spread can affect pets and humans, your pet's parasite prevention helps defend your whole family. Learn more about zoonotic diseases here.
