Why should my dog or cat be on heartworm prevention?
Heartworms are parasites that are spread by mosquito bites. Over a 6 month period, these parasites travel from the site of entry to the blood vessels between the heart and lungs. As these parasites grow, they cause damage to the heart and eventually heart failure.
In cats, heartworms are not treatable and the most common symptom is sudden death.
For dogs, there is a treatment. However, the treatment is painful and your dog will have to be cage-rested for 6 months to help prevent deadly blood clots. We also can’t reverse the damage done to the heart. The treatment costs more than purchasing 7 years of prevention.
Why does my pet need an annual exam to stay on his/her medications?
I only given flea and tick medication from May until October, is that ok?
We recommend flea and tick medication be used 12 months of the year. In this area of the country, we have at least one warm day every month. For the ticks that carry Lyme disease (the black-legged tick) it just has to be over 37 F to be out searching for an animal to bite. As for fleas, it has to be a bit warmer, but when it hits about 50 F those fleas are out biting. And once they are on your pet and come into your home, your home is typically a comfortable 70 F. That is perfect weather for a flea colony to make its home.

How does your team get through some of your difficult days?
We love to read, and many times reread, some of the positive and thankful notes that our clients send to us. These help us remember why we are in this business. A good dose of laughter helps as well.
Does it bother you when we bring our human children along? We feel like they are distracting to you!
Not at all! Dr. Carrie and Dr. Jessica both have children and aren’t bothered or distracted at all. In fact we love seeing them being involved in their pet’s care.
