HEARTWORM, TICK & FLEA SEASON
It is that time of year again!
Ticks are active anytime the ambient temperature is above zero degrees Celsius. We recommend having your pet on year round tick and flea prevention due to the mild weather we have been getting throughout the winter months.
Heartworm season is from June - November. Heartworm is a blood parasite that is transmitted by mosquitoes. It is easily prevented with a monthly prevention but it is much more difficult to treat. Heartworm testing is done from April - June prior to starting your pet on the monthly prevention.
