Protection Your Dog Will Flip For

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.

 

Flea and Tick Prevention Month

SophieGrassDuring the month of July, we are celebrating flea and tick prevention with several promotions. We recommend flea and tick prevention year-round for multiple reasons. Fleas can thrive all year long because of our weather although many people notice an increase in flea infestations during the summer. Flea eggs develop best in higher humidity and in temperatures of 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, prevention throughout the year is a much better option than treating an infestation after it occurs. Fleas and ticks can cause harmful and deadly conditions. Preventatives can help shield your pet from these pesky parasites especially during the summer months when their exposure often increases. Call us to ask about various savings or promotions for flea and tick preventatives for dogs and cats. Also, during the month of July you can try Nexgard for free. Some exclusions apply. Nexgard is a chewable treat for dogs that is administered once monthly to kill fleas and ticks. Also, any pet parents who takes home Nexgard during this month will receive a ballot to enter into a contest to win 1 of 10 BBQ prize packs that each include a brand new grill, patio furniture, and food gift card. These packs have a retail value of $7,500!
