Flea and Tick Prevention
Did you know that every cat is at risk of getting fleas and ticks all year round? Winter does not stop fleas and ticks from attacking your pet. Your pet should be on a flea and tick preventative all year round, regardless of if they are indoor only. Fleas do more than make your pet itchy. When fleas are ingested by your pet, your pet can get tapeworms.
Nexgard COMBO is a topical medication for flea and tick control. It also prevents heartworm disease, controls and treats roundworms and hookworms, and kills tapeworms.
Seresto is a flea and tick collar that lasts for 8 months.
Vaccines are essential to keeping your pet healthy. By vaccinating your pet, you decrease the likelihood that your pet will face devastating diseases. It is important to continue vaccinating your pet throughout their life. Some vaccines require multiple boosters. Every booster is important.
Rabies is a viral infection caused by a bite from an infected animal. Rabies is mostly transmitted by wildlife. In the United States, vaccination has been instrumental in the reduction of rabies cases in our pets.
All cats (indoor and outdoor) are at risk of several additional infectious diseases. Airborne diseases such as feline viral rhinotracheitis and feline calicivirus are very contagious and may be transmitted without any direct contact to an infected cat. Panleukopenia is a very contagious disease transmitted through bodily fluids. We vaccinate all of our feline patients against these diseases.
