Today in veterinary medicine we have very effective and safe products to eliminate internal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms. For puppies and kittens we use various products in 3 week intervals to eliminate these parasites.
Heartworm is a progressive, life-threatening disease. The earlier it is detected and treated, the better the chances that your pet will recover and have less complications. Because heartworms are spread by mosquitoes, any pet is at risk of exposure and should be tested. This includes pets that only go outside occasionally or are indoor-only since mosquitoes can also get into your home.
While there are a number of products available for use with dogs with generalized demodex, we have found the traditional Mitaban® dip to be the most effective both for cure and cost. Generally, we do two bathes three weeks apart. For dogs with small affected areas, there is a local product that can be used. We do skin scrapes following treatment to ensure these mites are gone.
Fleas and Tick Eradication
We offer clients a wide variety of products based on species, risk factors and household situation. We offer Revolution®, Frontline Gold® at the hospital.
Additionally, we have a new product called NexGard® for dogs that is a taste tab (edible pill), not a spot-on product, that starts killing fleas in 1/2 hour and is very effective in killing fleas.
