Southern California weather can promote the life cycle of many biting insects regardless of the time of year. Insects such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are not just a nuisance. They can cause harmful diseases such as heartworm, Lyme disease, Erlichiosis, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, anemia, Cat Scratch fever, and tapeworm infection. Parasites can also transfer some of these diseases to people. We recommend year-round parasite protection for all pets including ones who live mostly or exclusively indoors since vectors can find their way or be tracked into the home.
We carefully select only the safest and most effective preventative medications for your pet. Heartgard Plus is a chewable treat administered once a month to protect dogs from heartworm disease. It also prevents hookworm and roundworm infection which can both be transferred to people. Nexgard is also a chewable treat for dogs and it is administered once a month to kill fleas and ticks. Nexgard works fast and stays effective all month long. Receive a FREE Kong Gyro toy when you purchase any box of Nexgard or Heartgard while supplies last. Your dog will flip for this interactive, treat-dispensing toy and you can rest assured that vector protection is taken care of! Please contact us for more details.

Have you considered volunteerism in animal assisted therapy for you and/or your pet? Pet Partners
is a national organization that trains and registers animal and handler teams for visitation programs in hospitals, schools, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and other facilities. Animal assisted activities and therapies are proven to provide tremendous physical, social, and emotional benefits to recipients.
Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program is an exceptional option for volunteer teams. You can pick when, where, and how often you volunteer. While dogs consist of the vast majority of therapy animals, Pet Partners registers nine different species of animals for therapy work. Animal welfare and enjoyment is a cornerstone of the program. Therapy visits are designed to be safe and enjoyable for everyone.
The program registration process ensures that you and your animal are suitable and prepared for therapy work. It includes a handler's course, animal health verification, and team evaluation. The handler's course acquaints individuals with considerations and responsibilities they will encounter at various therapy facilities. Health screening verification is signed off by a veterinarian and ensures that therapy animals meet high standards associated with grooming and regular veterinary care. Once the handler's course is complete, a Pet Partners licensed evaluator will conduct a mock therapy visit. A standard new team registration is $95.
