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.
