Wellness

Spring is upon us and the bugs are coming out! Don’t forget to keep all your pets protected from the nasty fleas, ticks, and mosquitos. It is important to keep them on preventatives all year round because all these bugs can still be out there even during winter months.


Each flea, tick, and heartworm product works in a different way and is used to prevent different way and is used to prevent different parasites, so be sure and ask which product would be right for your pets and their living situation. We’ll be glad to help you figure out what works best for you and your pets!


Some products also have great rebates and discounts. Stop by the clinic to ask what is available! We carry Nexgard and Simparica, flea and tick preventative for dogs. For heartworm preventative for dogs, we carry Interceptor Plus and Heartgard Plus. For cats, we carry Revolution and Bravecto.


IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW! When you purchase your preventatives through a veterinarian, the manufacturer has a guarantee that includes treatment of diseases caused by those parasites (please check with the manufacturer), consults if there are adverse effects, and many other benefits. If these products are purchased online or at big box stores, the manufacturer cannot guarantee the product is exact same chemical, strength, or even the original product you thought you were buying. Sometimes the same packaging is used for a different product. In addition, you no longer receive the manufacturer’s guarantee of treatment.


Keep your furfriends safe and protected!





sileo

SILEO® (dexmedetomidine oromucosal gel) is an oromucosal gel formulation of dexmedetomidine hydrochloride provided in a 3 mL syringe at a concentration of 0.1 mg/mL. Using the syringe, SILEO is easily administered between the cheek and gum, allowing for transmucosal absorption. Because SILEO is formulated to provide a low dose of dexmedetomidine, the dog remains calm, yet fully functional, and is able to interact normally with the family.
