Heartworm and Flea Prevention


Heartworm and flea prevention are vital to overall wellness for dogs and cats. Due to our climate, mosquitos and fleas are active all year long causing a threat to both dogs and cats. In addition, because these pests can get inside, all cats and dogs, whether indoor only or outdoor, need to be on heartworm and flea prevention.

We offer a wide variety of products in house for your convenience based on your lifestyle and the needs of your cat or dog. Additionally, our online pharmacy carries even more products if you need a different prescription.

Since heartworm prevention and some of the flea control products we carry require a prescription, a physical exam is needed prior to dispensing preventatives. Heartworm prevention will also require a heartworm test performed prior to receiving the prescription which can quickly and easily be performed in house.
