Seasonal Pet Tips

Spring allergies

It seems like all we talk about anymore are allergies in our pets. This is especially true this year because we did not have a typical Midwest winter. We’ve progressed from mildew allergies this winter to the current tree pollen season. Dogs tend to show more eye and sinus inflammation during the springtime than they do during the fall ragweed season. If your dog is suffering from watery, red eyes, sneezing, and itchy skin, please call us. We can help!

Parasite preventatives

Ticks are active anytime the temperature rises above forty degrees, and they are especially active in springtime. There are many excellent products available for flea and tick control, including new and improved topicals, oral preventatives, and a flea and tick collar that really works. We have special pricing and rebate programs that keep us very competitive with online pharmacies.

As a reminder, please continue to give heartworm preventative every month to guard against these mosquito borne parasites. Another important benefit from giving a monthly heartworm preventative is that it also controls intestinal parasites such as roundworms and hookworms.
