Parasite Control and Prevention

Parasite Control and Prevention

The things that can cause gigantic harm to your pet are often barely visible to the naked eye. This is certainly true when it comes to fleas, ticks, mites, lice, worms and other parasites. Don’t let their miniscule size fool you, these creatures can cause serious health issues such as Lyme disease, irreversible organ damage, blood loss, painful skin infections and more. Learn how to protect your pet by reaching out to our team. Call us at (780) 475-9225.





How can I protect my pet from parasites?
It’s all about maintenance and prevention measures. Yearly deworming treatments and taking parasite control medications several times throughout the year can protect your pet from being infected by parasites. There are different types of medications and dosing schedules available so please ask us to know which is best for your furry friend.

Do indoor pets need parasite control? Do pets need parasite control in the winter?
The short answer is yes. Parasites can still find your indoor pet by entering your home using you, other people, other animals and other objects as vehicles. Even during the colder months, many parasites can still survive, hibernate or reproduce, especially once they have made it inside a warm environment. Your pet can be exposed to parasites at the doggy daycare, kennel and even in your home.

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
